Archive BOWMORE 2001

Exceptionally classy and incredibly complex, this Bowmore will literally bowl you over. Numerous are the words that can be used to describe this whisky: generous, elegant, multifarious, nuanced, highly sensual, classic, original, deep, ethereal. However, one thing is certain, its charm can only come from one place: Bowmore. To this has been added a large dose of brilliant creativity.

Product details

Tasting note

  • Appearance : bright golden yellow.
  • Nose : rich, concentrated. Immediate notes of dry straw, rich peat, citrus fruits (grapefruit) and exotic fruit (pineapple) give it strength and freshness. Becomes increasingly medicinal (camphor). Mineral (pencil lead), becomes increasingly refined. Exceptional.
  • Palate : balanced and highly focused on its subject: notes of peat, smoke, iodine, salt and spices. In one word: Bowmore. Dazzlingly bright, it offers two choices: a sea trip or a delicious plate of freshly caught whitebait. The end of the palate is full of sensuality and reveals an imposing amount of peat.
  • Overall : smooth, delicate. Enhances the quality of the tasting. Whether it’s the peat, fruit, flowers, spices, smoke or iodine, all of these notes reach their peak here and surpass themselves. Notes of fresh coriander and parsley gradually take root on an increasingly oily and salty peat. The retro-olfaction proves to be as intense as the palate and the empty glass distils a subtle mixture of smoke and candied lemon.
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 Cask Strength Collection of single malt and single grain whiskies is without doubt one of the most appreciated ranges. Each release is bottled undiluted, unchillfiltered and usually consists of a single cask. To help the consumer appreciate their whisky at more than a purely aromatic and gustatory level, Signatory Vintage takes care to display on each label, with great precision, the region of production, the date of distillation and bottling, the type of cask used, its number and the number of bottles of the same nectar that were produced. This range thus offers some fascinating facts, in addition to exceptional quality!
