This unique liquid from the home of the legendary No.1 Vaults, the oldest maturation warehouse in the world, has spent 20 years maturing in a single sherry cask, developing deep layers of flavour. Bowmore ® 1997 offers a rich nose with notes of malty biscuit, dried flowers and a hint of white pepper alongside buttery toffee, freshly roasted coffee and vanilla sponge cake.
On the palate, flavours develop into sweet peat with burnt wood and light barbecue ash notes alongside lemon zest. Gentle vanilla and dried wood complement the peated malt character, with a sweet and smoky finish and lingering herbal and floral notes. Just 198 numbered bottles of Bowmore 1997 will be available to global travellers exclusively from Heathrow T2, T3, T4 & T5 in World Duty Free’s “World of Whiskies” stores, at an RRP of £295.
The expression will be launched on 7 December, when Bowmore® Distillery Manager, David Turner, will be in the World of Whiskies stores in Heathrow T2 and T5 to sign bottles of this limited release. Along with overseeing the day-to-day running of the distillery, David acts as guardian of the precious whiskies that lay maturing in the legendary No.1 Vaults. Using a portfolio of skills developed over his 25-year career at Bowmore®, David carefully hand-selects casks for maturation, keeping a watchful eye on the ageing spirits to determine exactly the right time to bottle the liquid gold inside.

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

Laphroaig® Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky continues to celebrate its bicentenary with the release of the Laphroaig 32 Year Old. The very special bottling, distributed by Maxxium UK, has been aged for over three decades in a single cask type.
Matured exclusively in a first-fill ex-Oloroso cask, the Laphroaig 32 Year Old is a whisky that has picked up all the flavours so typical of spirit laid down in ex-Sherry casks – the dark Christmas fruits, the nuts and spice, and at the same time possesses the extraordinary deli-cate balance common to old, excellent whiskies. It is an extremely rare and accomplished whisky.
On the nose the aroma of caramelised brown sugar is predominant, with notes of dark, bit-ter chocolate and nutmeg leading the palate, followed by a dry and lingering sherried oak finish.
Laphroaig 32 Year Old, an intensely rich single, malt will be available in October 2015 in selected specialist whisky retailers with a RRP of £750.00.
Issued by The BIG Partnership on behalf of Maxxium UK, UK distributors of Laphroaig.

20 April 2015: Established in 1815, this year sees the 200th anniversary of Laphroaig® Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky. To commemorate this landmark celebration, Laphroaig is proud to announce a very special and limited release of Laphroaig 15 Year Old.
A long revered expression in the Laphroaig range, Laphroaig 15 Year Old was originally launched more than 30 years ago, with a lower level of peat and a higher bottling strength of 43% all combining to give the whisky a mellow, rounded taste, its briny orchard fruits adding bite and depth, the overall feel rich and smoky.
Laphroaig Distillery Manager John Campbell decided to re-release this product, one of his long-time favourites, in celebration of Laphroaig’s 200th anniversary. Beautifully made, Laphroaig 15 Year Old pays homage to the original edition, answering the call for its return by many a long term friend, while at the same time introducing new fans of Laphroaig to a whisky that they have yet to taste.
Laphroaig has been dividing opinions for 200 years, always garnering strong and interesting points of view through the years. Some of these varying opinions are featured in videos as part of the Laphroaig Opinions Welcome campaign, which can be viewed at www.laphroaig.com/opinions.
Laphroaig 15 Year Old will continue to welcome a multitude of different global perspectives on the divisive whisky with the launch of ‘200 Opinions Wanted’ – a competition to celebrate the very best Laphroaig opinions from around the world. Two-hundred of the most unique opinions will be displayed as individual tiles on the distillery wall and the authors of the very best of them will be rewarded with a trip to Islay to attend “Laphroaig Live,” a global whisky event held at the historic Laphroaig Distillery for the first time in nine years. In addition to the distillery’s 200th anniversary, this year also marks the 21st birthday of Friends of Laphroaig, the brand’s loyal group of fans and supporters. Much of this year’s Laphroaig Live is designed with them firmly front of mind. All the more reason to celebrate!
Laphroaig 15 Year Old will be available in May 2015 in all good whisky retailers with a RRP of £75.00 with additional new releases planned across the year.
Issued by The BIG Partnership on behalf of Maxxium UK, UK distributors of Laphroaig.
