  • Mossburn “Island” Blended Malt, Mossburn Distillers, Jedburgh, 46% vol, 70cl

    Mossburn “Island” Blended Malt, Mossburn Distillers, Jedburgh, 46% vol, 70cl

    WH06

    The Mossburn “Signature Casks” range of whiskies aim to showcase the typical characters of Scotland’s regional malts. They have been created to illustrate the classic expressions of their provenance, with further influence from Mossburn’s “signature” casks which were designed specifically to enhance the characteristics in each of these exemplary malts.

     

    Mossburn’s Master Blender has chosen a number of mature whiskies from different Scottish island distilleries that illustrate the typical smoky, phenolic, maritime flavours of a traditionally peated Malt Whisky. Initially aged in American oak before being blended and aged a second time in the specially coopered, custom-made Mossburn Casks. These casks were built to a precise specification, or Cask Bill, with each of the malts having its very own: Cask Bill #1 for the Island features first-fill ex-Bourbon barrels with toasted new European oak heads which provide additional smoky spice and extra depth.

     

    These Blended Malt Scotch Whiskies have been bottled without any colouring or chill filtration.

  • Bowmore 12 Year Old, Single Islay Malt, 40% vol, 70cl

    Bowmore 12 Year Old, Single Islay Malt, 40% vol, 70cl

    WH18

    The Queen of the Hebrides’, Islay (pronounced “eye-la”) is located just off the west coast of Scotland. Its mild climate and rich peaty soil make it ideal for creating whisky, and despite having a population of not much more than 3,000, it’s home to no fewer than eight distilleries.

     

    Bowmore Distillery has stood on the shores of Loch Indaal, a sea loch that opens out into the Atlantic Ocean, since 1779. The distillery’s proximity to the sea plays a vital role in shaping the final character of the spirit, which breathes in the salty sea air all the while it’s maturing.

     

    It’s Bowmore’s unique combination of the purest water from the Laggan River, floor-malted barley that has been carefully smoked in a peat-fired kiln, the finest oak casks left to mature in their No. 1 Vaults, Islay’s natural environment and a dedicated team of craftsmen that together create the perfect balance for which Bowmore is renowned.

     

    Bowmore’s now legendary No. 1 Vaults is a very special place indeed. The oldest maturation warehouse in Scotland and the only one below sea level, its dark, damp and cold conditions are perfect for maturing whisky. It’s here that Bowmore’s single malts spend their long lives maturing in specially selected oak casks, gradually developing the finest of flavours.

     

    Warm yellow / amber in appearance, the nose has subtle lemon and honey, balanced beautifully by Bowmore’s trademark peaty smokiness and hints of fresh citrus. The palate is slightly sweet with heather honey, gentle peat smoke and zesty lemon notes.

    Matured in a combination of both bourbon and sherry casks, it’s the final three years spent in Oloroso sherry casks that gives Bowmore 15 Years Old ‘Darkest’, one of the most beautifully balanced Bowmores, the rich, deep colour reflected in its name, and its warming finish.

     

    Dark amber in appearance, the nose has notes of rich dark chocolate, sun-dried fruits and a tell-tale wisp of Islay smoke. The palate has cedar wood and rich cocoa / toffee flavours with the typical Islay smoke in the background. The finish is rich and robust with a touch of sherry wood sweetness and tannin.
