On the eye treacle dark amber.
Breathe in delicious dark chocolate, sun-dried fruits and a tell-tale wisp of Islay smoke.
Sip wonderful cedar wood and rich treacle toffee.
Savour the robust and complex finish with a hint of sherry tannin.
Ultimate Beverage Challenge 93 points - Cinnamon and sherry abound on the nose. Soft and heavily smokey in the mouth, some hints of sweet raisin and dried fig come through on the palate with the earthy campfire flavors lasting on and on. The texture is round and silken. (Apr 2014)
Matured in an inspired combination of both bourbon and sherry casks, it’s the final three years spent in Oloroso sherry casks that gives Bowmore 15 Years Old ’Darkest’, one of the most beautifully balanced Bowmores, the rich, deep colour reflected in its name, and its warming finish.
|Bowmore’s celebrated Single Malt has been distilled on this jewel of an island, the Queen of the Hebrides, ever since 1779. This makes it the first of Islay’s eight distilleries chronologically speaking (and by taste too, many would say). Now, as then, Bowmore is widely acknowledged to be among the finest and most perfectly balanced single malts in the world.
