Islay’s oldest distillery has never been one for half measures or subtle gestures. Bowmore produces a brazenly peated spirit, all heavily smoked and sea soaked. That’s the starting point for this expression; an energetic, lively dram emboldened by a wildly uncompromising youthful spirit that couldn’t wait to erupt from its American oak cask.
There’s an immediate burst of sea spray and wet tar that combine with a hint of bitter lemon. Then the peat hits, fresh and eager, bursting with sweet smoke and vanilla.

These big flavours stand up beautifully to blue cheese served simply with crackers or in a soufflé. A classic 70% dark chocolate is also a delicious option.
