Ultimate Beverage Challenge 97 points - (UB Collection,Finalist,Tried & True Award)- Gorgeous auburn/henna color. The aroma is chockfull of toasted, roasted grain elements plus hallmark sherry cask traits of black raisins, figs, and high cocoa content chocolate. Taste profile is offers a generous, satin-like viscosity that supports the rich, dark caramel, dark roasted malt, and espresso flavors. A titanic Islay malt that echoes the legendary Black Bowmore 1964. (Mar 2015)
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.
|Bowmore’s celebrated Single Malt has been distilled on this jewel of an island, the Queen of the Hebrides, ever since 1779. This makes it the first of Islay’s eight distilleries chronologically speaking (and by taste too, many would say). Now, as then, Bowmore is widely acknowledged to be among the finest and most perfectly balanced single malts in the world.
