Whisky Advocate Rating: 90 points (John Hansell)
The First Islay Single Malt Whisky. From the Hebridean island of Islay, Bowmore’s roots
(and its distillery) go back over 230 years. One sip and you taste the unmistakable smoky
peatiness of the first Islay malt.
The Darkest Distinction – 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.
