Devils Cask II
Legend has it that the Devil once visited the church in Bowmore. If you have ever seen it,you’ll know that the church is circular, built that way (so it’s said) so there would be no corner in which the Devil could hide.
The local congregation spotted the Devil and chased him down through the village, into the gates of Bowmore Distillery. Here, the warehousemen were filling casks and loading them aboard the paddle steamer, The Maid of Islay. Gates and doors locked tight shut, every inch of the distillery was searched, but to no avail. As legend goes, the devil escaped in a cask of Bowmore bound for the mainland.
Matured exclusively - and unusually - in the finest first fill sherry casks, the second small batch release of Devil's Casks is still mischievous. Having mellowed under a cloak of smooth velvet and sublime sherry cask indulgence, it reveals even more of Bowmore's devilish dark side. This small batch release is, quite simply, devilishly good!
Rachel Barrie, Master Blender of Morrison Bowmore Distillers, said:
"The first edition of this expression was one of the most sought after whiskies of 2013. This second small batch release will no doubt emulate that success thanks to its devilishly tasty dark side, in debt to the first-fill sherry casks it has been carefully mellowed in."
