Product details

Tasting note

  • Appearance : or vif.
  • Nose : complexe, fin. Les grands Bowmore sont toujours marqués par une tourbe ciselée qui s’insinue dans les moindres interstices de la palette aromatique afin de mieux la mettre en valeur. Ainsi, au-delà de la tourbe, les fruits exotiques (mangue, ananas, passion), la fleur de sel, la vanille, le chocolat, les agrumes (citron, pamplemousse), le cuir, la fumée, et les épices douces (cumin, cannelle) s’expriment à merveille.
  • Palate : impressionnante de finesse. Médicinale et vivifiante. Avec une intensité redoublée, elle reprend à son compte la complexité aromatique du nez. Véritable invitation au départ, c’est toutes voiles dehors qu’elle exhibe ses fruits, ses épices, ses notes de réglisse et de terre humide.
  • Overall : longue, soyeuse. Si la tourbe est omniprésente, à aucun moment elle ne se s’impose. Alors que les fruits exotiques reviennent en force. Le verre vide est une composition florale aux couleurs chatoyantes et aux parfums enivrants.
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

Baptised ‘Artist’, this new range makes no bones about proclaiming its identity. Cosmopolitan and contemporary, it draws its inspiration from the style that gave the Italian bottlings of the 60s and 70s their cult following. From the choice of whiskies (distillery, ageing process, age, strength, bottling procedure) to the design of the bottle and choice of label, every detail has been carefully considered. This range offers a fine presentation of both the whiskies and the artist whose works have been selected for the back labels.
