Product details

Tasting note

  • Appearance : topaze à reflets cuivrés.
  • Nose : puissant. Ses épices sont particulièrement intenses (curry, poivre noir) et ses fleurs capiteuses à souhait (pivoine, oeillet). Il évolue sur la paille humide, les fruits secs (amande, datte), la mangue très mûre et le vétiver. Le chocolat, la poudre de riz et les plantes aromatiques (thym, coriandre) ajoutent de la profondeur.
  • Palate : trapue, corsée. L’influence du sherry est flagrante (amande, pain d’épices, fraise écrasée). Puis, Bowmore apparaît dans toute sa splendeur marine (algues, poisson fumé), tourbée (terre, humus), saline, minérale (schiste) et huileuse (olive, tapenade). Elle se prolonge sur la douce amertume de l’orge maltée fumée et les zestes d’agrumes (orange, clémentine).
  • Overall : longue, concentrée. La tourbe s’est faite marine et la réglisse noire. La fève de cacao et la menthe verte forment un duo à la fois frais et gourmand. Elle se prolonge sur le tabac (havane) et les cendres. La rétro olfaction fait ressortir des notes végétales (luzerne, salicorne) et le verre vide la tourbe, les fleurs (lavande, violette) et le curcuma.
The brand

The brand

Bowmore, founded in 1779 in the town of the same name on the Loch Indaal coast, is the oldest distillery on the Isle of Islay. The No.1 Vaults has played a major role in building its renown, not simply because of the quality of the casks it holds, but also because of its exceptional location. It is actually located below sea level, with the seawall acting as the one of the walls of the vault. The distillery is also famous for its medium-peated bottlings and the special cask finishes that have won it huge acclaim. Still operating according to traditional methods, its barley is partially malted on site. Find out more


Although the independent bottler Signatory Vintage cannot claim to be one of the oldest in Scotland, it has managed to build up an extremely solid reputation amongst the great malt connoisseurs. The creator of the famous range The Prestonfield and many other well-known ranges, it is best known for its un-chillfiltered and cask strength bottlings that offer amateurs the chance to enjoy their whisky in its most natural form. It was also one of the first independent bottlers to acquire a distillery and now offers a growing number of expressions of one of the most artisan single malts available.

The line

The Un-Chillfiltered Collection enables enthusiasts to enjoy the flavour of whisky that has not undergone chill filtering. Like cognac, armagnac and other fine spirits, most whiskies today are chill filtered. The whiskies in this range have an appearance and aromatic range that is much more faithful to the original products. Richer, oilier, more aromatic and distinctive, these whiskies are from single casks or are a blend of two or three casks at the most. They offer the ultimate authentic taste experience!
