Worth its salt.

Founded in 1779, The Bowmore Distillery is one of the oldest in Scotland. Castles made of sand fall into the sea eventually, but Bowmore is here to last. This storied distillery lies on the west shore of Islay where they make one of the most recognized smoky drams in the Whisky world. Islay is special. For centuries, all they had in this rugged land was the local barley, clear spring water, peat for fuel, and the sea. If you take all that and wring it into a barrel, you get Bowmore — a classic single malt Islay Whisky that’s certainly worth its salt.

Bowmore knows that this special environment defines its special product. That’s why they’ve decided to honor it with a special collection. Bowmore Vault Edition No. 1 is the first in the range of single malts calling attention to one of the unique elements that influence the style of their Whisky. Distillery’s proximity to the sea affects the character of the Spirit and the Atlantic Ocean spray that washes against the sea-facing wall of Bowmore’s legendary underwater No.1 Vaults determines that sea salt is a key note in this release.

The fact the Whiskey is bottled at 51,5 % ABV, means the dram packs a hefty punch. You can add a pinch of water to stem the tide, or you can meet the crashing waves head on. Whatever you prefer. The dram is as intense, complex and smoky as any true Islaynder should be. Plus it carries the enticement of that distinctive character created by the alchemy in the legendary seaside warehouse. Perhaps, you can take the last bit with a pinch of salt.

90% of all Scotch Whiskies sold are Blends.
Single malt stands for around 10% of the Scotch market. This is a malt containing only one grain, legally required to be barley in Scotland, and made at a single distillery.

A blended Scotch is a combination of different malts from different distilleries. It is typically made from grain Whisky but does include malt Whisky to give it a more complex body.
Can Scotch go bad? Technically, an unopened bottle of Scotch can last forever. Air is the only true evil to Whisky; once the liquid is oxidized it is no longer immortal. After opening, as long as you store your Whisky in a cool, dry place, it will last another 5 years.
90% of all Scotch Whisky released in the market is a blend. That’s a hell of a lot.
During World War II, Bowmore was closed for production. But they opened up their dock and offices for a local squadron of RAF Flying Boats, for anti-submarine warfare operations. 
Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
