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.

A NEW WORLD WHERE EAST MEETS WEST
Bowmore, the first distillery on Scotland’s isle of Islay, has launched a world first; a Single Malt Scotch Whisky that has been finished in precious oak casks hand-crafted from the rare Mizunara tree of Japan. Bowmore Mizunara Cask Finish beautifully brings together two of the world’s most renowned whisky islands to create a refined, elegant and complex Single Malt, making it the ultimate gift for the whisky connoisseur. This exclusive expression of just 2,000 bottles is priced from £650.
A WHISKY MADE OF MORE
Having never before left Japan, the carefully selected and delicate Mizunara oak casks embarked on a 6,000 mile journey across two oceans, before being laid to rest in Bowmore’s legendary No.1 vaults located on Scotland’s rugged whisky island. Under the watchful eye of Bowmore’s Distillery Manager and Master Blender the result is a whisky finished to perfection, imparting notes of floral spice with fragrant smoke, carried on a fresh ocean breeze to create a uniquely balanced and refined dram of consequence.
From the instantly captivating and recognisable Mizunara oak flavours of spicy but sweet vanilla on the palate, followed by notes of cedar wood, exotic mango and honey-rose blossom, Bowmore Mizunara Cask Finish is balanced by the complementary notes of Bowmore’s signature smokiness to create a rounded and complex whisky that should be served and savoured neat.
Enjoy this exceptional whisky from a traditional Glencairn crystal tulip glass. Perfect for nosing, the bowl of this iconic glass gives the whisky room to breathe; this opens up the aromas before delivering the dram onto exactly the right part of the tongue, maximising the tasting experience of this unique liquid.
THE WHISKY LOVERS’ COLLECTION
Filled and sealed by hand, the limited edition bottle is presented in a specially designed luxury box with illustrations denoting its Japanese and Scottish heritage. With the rare whisky launching just in time for the festive gifting period, Bowmore Mizunara Cask Finish makes the ideal gift for whisky lovers and luxury collectors alike where they can own a part of history.
The Ardmore Single Malt Scotch Whisky, distributed by Maxxium UK, has launched The Ardmore Port Wood Finish.
The new expression is distilled with the same traditional methods used at the distillery since 1898, before being double-cask matured for 12 years in traditional American white oak ex-bourbon barrels and then finished in European half port pipes.
The release of The Ardmore Port Wood Finish follows the success of The Ardmore Legacy, which replaced Ardmore Traditional Cask as the distillery’s core expression. A lightly peated, sweet dram, The Ardmore Legacy offers the ideal introduction to peated single malts.
The newest member of this emerging portfolio, The Ardmore Port Wood Finish is a unique expression with a touch of sweetness. Ruby gold in colour this single malt is full of spiced fruits with a subtle smoky finish.
Peter Sandstrom, Marketing Director, Maxxium UK said: “Following the success of The Ardmore Legacy, which has established its status in the peated single malt category, the launch of The Ardmore Port Wood Finish further cements the quality and taste of the brand’s portfolio.
“The Ardmore Port Wood Finish is an excellent whisky made using the same traditional distilling methods for over 100 years. It is a unique and premium expression – with notes of sweet red apple and honey with the subtlest hint of charcoal smoke and a smooth, long, lingering finish culminating in the trademark Ardmore dryness – it is a whisky that offers a taste that sets it apart.”
The Ardmore Port Wood Finish is bottled at 46% ABV and is available from specialist whisky retailers at the RRP of £49.99.
