Founded in 1779, Bowmore was the first recorded distillery on Islay and one of the oldest in the whole of Scotland. Located on the shores of Loch Indaal which opens out into the Atlantic Ocean.
They produce their own floor malted barley which is then smoked in a peat-fired kiln and stored in oak casks.
This is a delightful bottle and very honest. What you pick up with the nose, you get on the palate.
Sea salt and honey, earthy peat, smoke and orange.
I like the lingering smokey finish which makes you want to pour another immediately. A really nice entry bottle from Bowmore which has made me add the 15 and 18 to my wish list.
