  • Palate : full, deep. heavier in humidity and liquorice the peat comes right after the exotic fruits (mango, passion fruits).Opening to bold spices (black pepper, nutmeg) and citrus fruits (grapefruits, lemon).the mid palate is malted and smoky. Progressively the peat turns to chocolate and praline. Dried fruits (apricot, almond, and walnut) after-taste expresses reflecting its matured character.
  • Overall : carved, delicate. Peaty notes play discretely with red fruits (raspberry, strawberry), heady flowers (dianthus, peony) and soft spices (cinnamon, fresh ginger). The retro-olfaction and the empty glass weave between peat, artichoke, bourbon-vanilla and bay leaf.
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.
