Bowmore 12 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky - Spirits Worth Raising

Bowmore 12 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Situated along the shores of Long Indaal, Bowmore Distillery was founded in 1779 by John Simpson. The distillery is the oldest distillery on the island of Islay and the second oldest in Scotland. Its unique location Long Indaal suffers from steady gusts of wind and strong eddies that make its waters especially hazardous plays an integral part in defining the lush, rich character of the Single Malt Whisky it produces.Bowmores Single Malt Whiskies are made from barley that has been expertly cultivated in the rolling hills of Scotland. Once the barley has been harvested, it is malted and peated at the distillery Bowmore remains one of the few Scottish distilleries that continues to hand-turn, malt, and peat its own barley. Unlike some other distilleries on Islay, however, the drying process is much shorter at Bowmore only 15 hours and utilizes only half as much peat, resulting in a Whisky with a robust yet still mild smoky flavor.After the barley has been malted and peated, it is mashed and fermented with pure water drawn from Laggan River. The water has spent two millennia percolating in the ancient rock formations and peatbogs of Islay, giving Bowmore Whiskey its distinctive, chewy body and subtle mouthfeel. Then, the fermented barley is twice distilled through Bowmores copper-pot stills before being left to mature in the distillerys seaside, underground maturation vaults.Part of Bowmores core range this 12-year-old Single Malt is complex and balanced, with puffs of peat smoke and pools of honey, sharpened by lemon zest. This incredible expression won a gold medal at the 2018 San Francisco World Spirits Competition.Pick up your bottle today!
