A superb gift set from Islay’s oldest distillery, Bowmore. This pack features three 50ml miniatures of different age-stated whiskies in the distillery’s standard range.
These whiskies allow the drinker to get to grips with the distillery’s house style across different ages and cask maturations. The 12 year old is the classic Bowmore bottling, the very core of their line-up, with beautiful notes of peppery, medium peat, tropical fruit and powerful smoke.
The 15 year old, known as “Darkest”, brings a little more sherry influence through its aging in Oloroso casks, and maturity through the longer aging. This results in a beautifully smoky whisky with plenty of dried fruit and sherry-spice flavours.
The final expression in the set is the 18 year old, an extremely popular and impressive offering from Bowmore. This whisky displays excellent maturity and balance, with the oakier notes of tropical fruit and toffee perfectly balanced against the maritime, ashy peat of the spirit. A top quality release that will captivate any whisky drinker.
This mini set would make the perfect gift for any whisky drinker, or just someone looking to see what Bowmore have to offer. The miniature size is ideal for trying these whiskies, without committing to the cost of a full bottle.
