Tasting note

  • Appearance : Vieil or à reflets ambrés.
  • Nose : Gourmand, riche. La lavande, le zan à la violette, les embruns, la réglisse verte, l’huile de noix et la tourbe bien sûr. Entièrement au service de la palette aromatique, tous ces parfums ne tombent jamais dans la facilité ni dans l’exubérance. Tout cela donne un équilibre quasi magique.
  • Palate : Ferme, puissante. D’un côté le sherry avec ses fruits exotiques (mangue, passion), de l’autre Bowmore avec ses embruns, ses notes salines et sa tourbe onctueuse. L’alliance des deux donne naissance à une ambiance champêtre (pissenlit, tournesol) et apaisante.
  • Overall : Très longue. Elle se fait plus capiteuse, la tourbe est plus présente et les plantes plus aromatiques (marjolaine, thym, sauge). Végétale (lichen), herbacée (foin coupé) et chocolatée, elle nous ramène à bride abattue dans les aires de maltage. La boucle est bouclée.
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

Merchant

Established in Glasgow in 1948 by Fred Douglas Laing, the Douglas Lang company has, in recent years, made numerous changes to its structure. Fred Laing’s movement to the head of the company has contributed towards the business’s sound reputation. Known throughout the industry for the quality and variety of its cask selection (Douglas Laing still has casks from the most prestigious distilleries: Glenfarclas, Talisker, Ardbeg, etc.), the company has expanded its already rich range that includes historic selections such as Double Barrel, Premier Barrel and Director’s Cut, with two new collections guaranteed to please connoisseurs: Single Minded and Old Particular.

The line

Launched in 1998, the Old Malt Cask range, consisting of 50 casks, was bottled to celebrate the 50th anniversary of this family-run business. Today more than a hundred releases are permanently available. Most of these are single casks that have been bottled without colouring or filtering and contain 50% ABV; they are considered to be the ‘golden strength’ by purists. In addition to the traditional releases at 50% ABV, there are some cask strength bottlings, created especially for La Maison du Whisky.
