Smoky sophistication in a lovely Islay Single malt.

Islay is special. For centuries, all they had was the local barley, clear spring water, cut and dried peat to heat their homes, and the sea … always there was the sea. If you take all that and wring it into a barrel, you get Bowmore… a Whisky spirit that clings to the memory of the barley, the peat, and the sea. The Bowmore Distillery is one of the oldest in all of Scotland. This storied distillery lies on the west coast of Islay, where the sea and native peat give rise to one of the most recognized smoky drams in the Single Malt Whisky world.

Bowmore 15 is a winner. In a nutshell, this incredible smoky dram starts as Bowmore’s core 12 year-old Islay Single Malt aged in ex-Bourbon barrels. It is then transferred to those oh-so-lovely Oloroso Sherry casks — you know, the one’s that every Whisky-maker drools over — for three more years. It’s a smoky-peaty, perfectly-crafted bottle of greatness with a complexity and sophistication that does not come around very often. The critics are raving about this one. And if you like a dash of smoke in your dram, you will want to make love to this one.

Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made in Scotland using a pot still distillation process at a single distillery, with malted barley as the only grain ingredient. It must be matured in oak casks in Scotland for at least three years (most single malts are matured longer).

Ratings & Reviews
Smokey with a little sweetness. Love this whisky!
A dram of this Bowmore 15 Year Single Malt Scotch was quite tasty. With hints of smoke and caramel on the nose, the dark chocolate and cherries compliment the palette well while the peat and sherry oak finish make this Scotch a nice sipper. The smoke and peat linger enough to notice their presence throughout but isn’t overpowering for someone who doesn’t appreciate a heavily peated pour like Ardbeg.
Excellent scotch - distinctly peaty but not overwhelmingly so, and has nice caramel and sherry flavors. The 15 year is very smooth.
I thought it has more than 50% alcohol. I like whiskys with higher alcohol level. At least at this moment. This one last long in your moth and around. And I like that. An it is smoky, but not too much, which I like.
