Product details

Tasting note

  • Appearance : jaune doré soutenu.
  • Nose : riche, complet. Qui des fleurs (genêt, mimosa), de la tourbe pour une fois terreuse, de la fève de cacao, des épices (girofle), du lait d’amande, des agrumes ou bien encore du poisson fumé domine la palette aromatique ? La réponse réside dans l’équilibre parfait de ce nez.
  • Palate : dense, puissante. La tourbe prend des accents médicinaux et fumés (cendres, tabac froid). Ses fruits à chair jaune (mirabelle) sont gorgés de sucres. Végétale et herbacée, elle devient de plus en plus saline. Le chocolat noir et la tourbe sont désormais intimement liés.
  • Overall : longue, elle regorge d’arômes de foin coupé, d’herbes aromatiques (sarriette, origan) et d’agrumes (citron). Elle se prolonge quelques instants sur la réglisse verte. Puis, le camphre, le girofle envahissent le palais. Le verre vide révèle un équilibre remarquable entre la tourbe et les autres arômes.
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


One man is behind this young German retailer - Carsten Ehrlich - a man who is similar to his bottlings, which are straightforward with precise and refined flavours. Various “joint-bottlings” resulted from our meeting with him. The first, Bunnahabhain 1975, which is aged in sherry casks, was chosen by the members of our amateurs club last June. The second is a great favourite of the Maison du Whisky team from the closed distillery of Littlemill, released in a completely exclusive bottling aged in a first-fill sherry butt. The last (but by no means least) is the first edition of Redbreast 15 Year Old, which was launched in 2006.
