Surely there are few locations more evocative than the shores of Lochindaal, an area positively steeped in rich Scottish folklore. It's no wonder then that Bowmore has a whiff of magic about it (or perhaps that's just the whisky). The oldest distillery on Islay, Bowmore still retains its own floor maltings, and while they can no longer meet all of the busy distillery's requirements, they still contribute a third of the malt used in every mash.

Just because something is old, doesn't mean it's old-fashioned, and Bowmore's eco friendly heat recovery system not only cuts down on those pesky bills, it also heats the town swimming pool!

Subtitled 'Double the Devil' the third, and final, release in the Devil’s Casks series drops the age statement but still has a 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: 1st Fill Oloroso & Pedro Ximenez casks

56.7% ABV / 70cl
