Bowmore 25 Year Old
The Bowmore 25 Year Old is a single malt Scotch whisky from the Islay region of Scotland. Widely regarded as one of the oldest distilleries on Islay, as well as the Scottish mainland, the Bowmore was built in 1779.
It is a unique single malt Scotch whisky is one of few anomalies among other Islay single malts that are known to be heavily peated, and medicinal in nature. The 25 Year Old is the most aged bottling from the core range at Bowmore.
The Bowmore whisky distillery was established by John. P. Simon, a local merchant who ran the distillery for many years before eventually selling to William and James Mutter, two brothers from Glasgow.
Running the business successfully for five decades, the Mutter brothers were forced to sell the distillery to John Bell Sherriff due to the economic depression in 1887. The distillery was purchased by Joseph Robert Holmes in 1892, who gave it the name ‘Bowmore’ before it was repurchased by James Bell Sherriff after many years in 1925.
Eventually, Stanley. P. Morrison purchased the Bowmore Distillery in 1963, helping the Bowmore brand gain more prominence in the market. Bowmore Distillery was acquired by Japanese conglomerate, Suntory in 2014.
The Bowmore 25 Year Old, as the name says, is aged for a lengthy period of 25 years in two different types of barrels, ex-Bourbon barrels from America and ex-Sherry butts from Spain. The combination of maturation in these two barrels grant an enormous depth and richness to the spirit, wonderfully balancing the coastal characteristics of the Islay with the fruity sweetness of Sherry.
It is a marvellous single malt in the super-premium 25 Year Old category, and
Bowmore 25 Year Old single malt Scotch whisky carries an alcohol strength of 43% ABV, slightly higher than the standard permissible limit for Scotch whiskies.
