The 15 year old malt shimmers with a dark amber color. Full bouquet right from the start. Nice combination of a not too strong, slightly ashy smoke together with a typical sherry aroma - dark dried red fruits. Molasses, sherry, caramelized nut, and raisin aromas. A supple entry leads to a a fruity medium-to full-bodied palate of toffee, baked orchard fruit, brown spice, and peat with a touch of smoky embers and sea salt. Finishes with a nice wave of sweet honey, pepper, eucalyptus, and camphor. Very deeply flavored and complex.

Bowmore is one of the biggest and oldest distilleries from Islay. It was founded in 1779 by David Simpson in the capital of the island, Bowmore. The distillery stayed in the Simpson family until 1837 when it was sold to William and James Mutter. James Mutter was also consul of the Ottoman Empire, Brazil and Portugal in Glasgow. Joseph Robert Holmes took the distillery over in 1892, and gave it the name of "Bowmore Distillery Co". In 1925, the distillery become propriety of Sheriffs' Bowmore Distillery Ltd. In 1950, William Grigor & Sons layed his hand on the distillery who was bankrupt in 1963, before being bought by Stanley P. Morrison. The name was changed in Morrison Bowmore in 1987. Since 1994, the Morrison Bowmore group belongs to the japanese Suntory group. The village of Bowmore is situated in a creek called Loch Indaal. The distillery is situated between the North and the South of the Island, and the whisky can be considered as being just between the Northern style and the Southern one.
