BOWMORE - 16 Year Old Port MaturedIslay Malt Whisky
This 1991 vintage has spent sixteen years maturing in 24 port casks held safe in the famous Bowmore vaults below sea level, resulting in a Bowmore that is deep ruby in colour.
The aromas are big and luscious with rich stewed fruit berries, sweet black cherries and hints of bitter dark chocolate underlined with a light Bowmore smokiness.
Glen Moore, Bowmore brand director said: 'We have seen increasing interest in limited edition releases and the influence different wood makes to the Bowmore spirit. The influence of the port casks is quite evident on the palate, packed full of brambles and damson jam, but still retaining that earthy, smokey Bowmore signature.'
This 16 year old port matured Bowmore follows in the footsteps of Bowmore sherry matured released in 2006 and Bowmore bourbon matured released in 2005.
The limited edition bottlings of Bowmore are not just purchased by consumers to enjoy the liquid, many are being snapped up by enthusiasts to add to their Malt whisky collections.
