Bowmore Darkest 15 Year Old Malt Whisky

Fragrantly smoky, perfumey and very floral, this malt has aromas of hessian and sea air, it is astonishingly fresh, delicious, appertising and complex. To taste, there is hint of flowering currant, with nutty flavours and layers of dry, black-treacle and maltiness. The sweet sherry notes take precedence over the peat. On the eye, it is a treacle dark amber.
Price £56.00

About the Brand

The Bowmore Darkest 15 Year Old has flourished since it gained a 15 year-old age statement. The sweet sherry notes take precedence over the peat here. Matured in an inspired combination of both bourbon and sherry casks, it's the final three years spent in Oloroso sherry casks that gives Bowmore 15 Years Old 'Darkest', one of the most beautifully balanced Bowmores, the rich, deep colour reflected in its name, and its warming finish.

Nose: leathery sherry notes, with tarred ropes, burnt sugar, medicinal edges, spiced fruit and burnt raisins (the ones that puff up and go crunchy on the edges of fruit cake). More sweetness developed as it sat in the glass, with jelly babies, coconut and vanilla appearing. Palate: pungent fruit and peat smoke, with grapefruit, linseed oil, and some floral touches, balanced by black liquorice, green leaves and some menthol. Water brought out more sweetness, with blackcurrant, cinnamon sugar and fruity chews developing along with spiced lebkuchen. Finish: dark wood, soft tar, woody spice and green apple.
