Bowmore, the first Islay single Malt since 1779, introduces Bowmore Small Batch, the first permanent addition to the Bowmore range since 2006. Small Batch is ripened to only 'first & second fill' bourbon barrels and is bottled at 40% alc. Bowmore Small Batch presents the taste of Islay at its best.
This new expression shows Bowmore's distinctive taste balance of turfrook, zesty and sweetness subtly. For Bowmore Small Batch, the best 'first & second fill' bourbon barrels are selected for bottling in 'small batches'. The result shows the best of both types of barrels:
- 'First bourbon' barrels give their vanilla sweetness, subtle spices and the bourbon smokiness of the oak barrels in addition to Bowmore's soft peat smoke
- 'Second fill' bourbon barrels enrich Bowmore's fresh, fruity complexity, and enhance Bowmore's characteristic honey sweetness.
Rachel Barrie, Master Blender Morrison Bowmore Distillers Ltd.: "Small Batch is like a summer day on Islay. The sweet smoked barley and best bourbon barrels create a harmony of ripe fruit, honey with hint of smoke. Relax, and you're on Islay! "
