BOWMORE DEVILLS CASK III N/A 70 Cl
When the folk of Bowmore formed an angry mob to chase the devil out of the church (which is of course round, offering him nowhere to hide), down the road and through the distillery, it was assumed that he must have made his escape in a cask heading to the mainland aboard the Maid of Islay. Some first fill Sherry casks at Bowmore make you wonder though, how can whisky be so devilishly delicious? This third and final Devil's Casks release uses both Oloroso and Pedro Ximénez casks for the firsttime.
This limited edition is matured in Oloroso and Pedro Ximenez casks and offers powerful notes of orange peel, chocolate, dates, caramel, cedar, smoke and coffee.
|Nose||Surprisingly little smoke, nice decent campfire, harsh dark chocolate, prunes, maybe cherry, rum raisins, also the alcohol you can feel.|
|Palate||More sea salt and chocolate, candied peels, rich dark fruits, gentle smoke and spices.|
|Finish||Long with complex coffee and cherry notes on the finish.|
