Whisky Focus - New Look Bowmore Whisky Range

New Look Bowmore Whisky Range


8th May 2017
New look and new addition for the Bowmore core range of whiskies.

Bowmore whisky range - Bowmore No.1, 12, 15, 18 and 25 year old.

You may have already spotted it on the shelves in whisky shops, the Bowmore whisky range has had a bit of a makeover with a new look label and box but it isn't just just a new cosmetic look the core range has a new addition to its line up, the Bowmore No.1.

The new look Bowmore whisky range is as follows:

Bowmore No.1 is the new entry level whisky and newest addition to the Bowmore whisky range, it replaces the now discontinued Bowmore Small Batch Reserve. The new Bowmore No.1 was matured in first fill Bourbon casks, Bowmore say it has a vanilla sweetness, cinnamon spice and oak smoke beautifully complement the mouth-watering citrus, honeycomb and coconut flakes, culminating in a peat smoked, bourbon vanilla and lime finish.

The Bowmore No.1 is bottled at 40% ABV and is presented in a 70cl bottle, it has a RRP of 32.

Bowmore 12 Year Old is in my eyes the classic Bowmore, complex and perfectly balanced. Subtle lemon and sweet heather honey complement Bowmore's trademark peat smoke, leading to a delicious, long and mellow finish.

The Bowmore 12 is bottled at 40% ABV and is presented in a 70cl bottle, it has a RRP of 36.

Bowmore 15 Year Old is matured in a combination of bourbon and sherry casks, it's the final three years spent in Oloroso sherry casks that gives Bowmore 15 Year Old the rich, deep colour reflected in its name, "Darkest" although the "Darkest name appears to have disappeared from the new packaging but it is still the same whisky which Bowmore describe as having a nose of delicious dark chocolate, sun-dried fruits and a tell-tale wisp of Islay smoke, on the palate wonderful cedar wood and rich treacle toffee and finishing with a hint of sherry tannin.

The Bowmore 15 is bottled at 43% ABV and is presented in a 70cl bottle, it has a RRP of 58.

Bowmore 18 Year Old is described by Bowmore as having a classic Bowmore smokiness, perfectly tempered with creamy caramel, chocolate and ripe fruit aromas. On the palate, beautiful soft fruit and chocolate balanced with a light smokiness - incredibly complex which leads to a long and wonderfully balanced finish.

The Bowmore 18 is bottled at 43% ABV and is presented in a 70cl bottle, it has a RRP of 80.

Bowmore 25 Year Old is matured for a quarter of a century in North American Bourbon and Spanish sherry casks. Bowmore describe it as having aromas of intense sherry and stewed fruits, with a trace of Bowmore smokiness. On the palate, delicious toffee and hazelnut, woven together with just a hint of sweet peat smoke leading to a mellow, gentle and incredibly complex finish.

The Bowmore 25 is bottled at 43% ABV and is presented in a 70cl bottle, it has a RRP of 265.
