TOAST THE FESTIVE SEASON
This winter, embrace the icy cold of the darker months thawed by a dram of the world-acclaimed ‘Darkest’ whisky created by the oldest distillery on the isle of Islay, located off the west coast of Scotland. Having been matured in ex-bourbon casks in the cool cellars of the legendary Bowmore No.1 Vaults, this precious whisky has spent its final 3 years in Oloroso sherry casks to give its signature darkest colour and warming finish, with a flavour profile of treacle toffee, hazelnuts and figs that perfectly matches the festive notes of the season.
NOTES OF WINTER
With Bowmore® 15 Years Old ‘Darkest’ Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky, breathe in seasonal notes of rich dried fruits, dark chocolate, and a hint of Bowmore® whisky’s signature smokiness before the palate is enveloped with the merry taste of toffee, raisins and gentle smoke leading the way to a deliciously rich centre that is befitting for all yuletide celebrations. Finally savour its robust and complex finish with a hint of sherry for a taste evocative of festive fruitcake in a glass.
A WARMING RECIPE
On the ink-black nights of winter create a luxurious serve with Bowmore® 15 Years Old ‘Darkest’ with a simple twist on the classic homemade hot chocolate. The rich and intoxicating scent of cocoa beans lends a subtle fruitiness that is perfectly complemented by the tell-tale wisp of Islay peat and the sun-dried fruit aromas of Bowmore 15 Years Old ‘Darkest’. With the perfect balance of whisky, chocolate and hot milk this is a real treat for whisky and chocolate lovers alike. Whether sipped alone or shared in a hot chocolate, Bowmore® 15 Years Old ‘Darkest’ is the ultimate winter whisky for the longer months of wintertide, described as ‘faultless’ by whisky legend Jim Murray.
