Bowmore is a distillery that produces scotch whisky on the isle of Islay, an island of the Inner Hebrides. The distillery, which lies on the South Eastern shore of Loch Indaal, is one of the oldest in Scotland, and is said to have been established in 1779. Bowmore Distillery sources as much barley as possible from on the island of Islay, however there are insufficient quantities produced to satisfy the distillery's demand, and barley is also imported from the mainland. The distillery retains a traditional floor malting but this also lacks sufficient capacity and the barley imported from the mainland is normally already malted. Classic Islay with gentle peaty aromas and barley flavours intermingled with a little sherry wood and seaside air.

Good, but not memorable

This has all the classic Islay peated whisky notes, but they are less intense than that found in whisky from other Islay distilleries. This could be due to the lower ABV at only 40% and it would be interesting to try a higher ABV Bowmore. It's a good solid whisky but the flavours all seem to be toned down. I had to try this a few times before writing a review because I struggled to recall what it tasted like. Probably a good one for someone new to Islay peated whisky.
