Bowmore 25 year old 43% Single Malt Whisky Tasting notes.
Colour: Deep, rich mahogany.
Nose: Intense sherry and stewed fruits with a trace of the Bowmore smokiness.
Palate: After twenty five years, delicious toffee and hazelnut have mellowed together with just a hint of sweet peat smoke.
The finish is mellow, gentle and incredibly complex.
Bowmore Malt Whisky Distillery History.
Founded in 1779 by John Simpson and so has claim to being the oldest “legal” distillery on the island and the twelfth oldest distillery in Scotland. John Simpson also managed the nearby, long gone, Tallant Distillery.
In 1852 Bowmore was acquired by W & J Mutters whom expanded the distillery premises increasing the warehousing and kilns.
When the journalist and author Alfred Barnard visited Bowmore during the 1880’s it was the second most productive distillery in Islay after Ardbeg. There were 12 legal distilleries that existed on the island at that time.
