Our new whiskies
Bowmore 100 Degrees Proof (1 litre)
The term 'proof spirit' was first coined by British sailors during the 18th century who would check that their rum rations hadn't been watered down by mixing it with gunpowder and lighting it. If it would still light, this proved it was 100% proof. There is no need to verify Bowmore's authenticity or strength; the new small batch release Bowmore 100 Degrees Proof is cask-strength and non-chill filtered.
Colour: Rich auburn.
Nose: Fresh Islay sea air, subtle sweet malt and oak smoke.
Palate: Rich luscious smokiness, balanced with sweet caramelised sugar, vanilla and citrus notes.
Finish: Powerful and warm.
Bowmore Springtide (70cl)
The new expression takes its name from the high tide of spring, when the earth, sun and moon are all aligned. Predominantly matured in first-fill Spanish Oloroso sherry casks, this beautifully rich expression is packaged in a super premium gift pack, the perfect purchase both as a gift and for the whisky enthusiast.
Colour: Warm bronze.
Nose: Abound in chocolate and sticky figs, which balance perfectly against the classic sea-salt peatiness.
Palate: Rich in treacle toffee with raisins and dark sherry.
Finish: Lingering smoky finish.
Bowmore 1983 (70cl)
The Bowmore 1983 will be available in the global travel retail market and marks the launch of the 1980s vintage series for this sector. Decanted from a single hogshead cask, this rare, limited edition has rested, undisturbed in the legendary No.1 Vaults, the maturation warehouse below sea level.
Colour: Brilliant bronze.
Nose: Just a touch of fresh Atlantic sea-salt followed by Bowmore's signature peat smoke with a hint of delicious ripe blackberry.
Palate: Captures the essence of Bowmore - earthy peat balanced by a gentle fruitiness.
Finish: Lingers on with fresh fruit and peat notes at the very end.
