You all know the legend of the Devil in the church by now. Just in case you missed it:

Legend has it that the Devil once visited the church in Bowmore. If you have ever seen it, you’ll know that the church is circular, built that way (so it’s said) so there would be no corner in which the Devil could hide. One day the local congregation spotted the Devil and chased him down through the village, into the gates of Bowmore Distillery. Here, the warehousemen were filling casks and loading them aboard the paddle steamer, The Maid of Islay. Gates and doors locked tight shut, every inch of the distillery was searched, but to no avail. As legend goes, the devil escaped in a cask of Bowmore bound for the mainland.

Batch #1

Matured exclusively, and unusually, for 10 years in the finest first fill sherry casks, which help to bring out Bowmore’s hot and fiery characteristics, this small batch release is, quite simply, devilishly good!

Bottled: 2013

Age: 10 years old

Cask Type: First Fill Sherry

56.9% ABV / 70cl

Batch #2

The devilishly dark side of the Bowmore is here in this edition, again thanks to first fill sherry casks being used to mature the whisky.

Bottled: 2014

Age: 10 years old

Cask Type: First Fill Sherry

56.3% ABV / 70cl

Batch #3

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
