The oldest distillery on Islay, Bowmore has been described as the Grande Dame of the island. It still has its own floor maltings which make up about 30% of its requirements. Its No. 1 vaults are the oldest maturation warehouse in Scotland and the only one below sea level.

Subtitled 'Double the Devil' Bowmore’s third, and final, release in the sought-after Devil’s Casks series drops the age statement but has rather special trick up its sleeve.

Marrying spirits matured in both dry Oloroso sherry casks and – for the first time – sweet Pedro Ximenez sherry casks, this whisky has an incredible intensity and remarkable richness.

Bottled: 2015

Cask Type: First Fill Oloroso and Pedro Ximenez casks

56.7% ABV / 70cl

Please examine the images of the bottle, any packaging and labels carefully and satisfy yourself as to their condition before making a bid.
