Bowmore 10 Years - The Devil's Casks Batch I
A much anticipated release from Bowmore, The Devil's Casks is a small batch 2013 release of 10 year old whisky aged entirely in first fill sherry casks. The delicious combination of peated whisky and sherry wood maturation strikes again.

Bowmore 10 Years - The Devil's Casks II
One of the most anticipated releases of 2014 – the second edition of Bowmore Devil's Casks. A fully sherry matured whisky from the capital of Islay, this is slightly sweeter than the first batch, but just as delicious.

Bowmore The Devil's Casks III - Double The Devil
The third and final appearance of The Devil's Casks from Bowmore, this combines the features of the previous two. Both Pedro Ximénez and oloroso sherry casks have been used, resulting in an intense and rich whisky with notes of coffee, salted treacle, chocolate fudge and dates.


Bowmore 10 Years - The Devil's Casks Batch I

Colour: reddish amber. Nose: the opposite of the 2000 and yet it remains very 'Bowmore'. The combination of the sherry with a very smoky late-period Bowmore creates a feeling of gunflints, tobacco and zwetschke jam (plums) that's very peculiar. Then it becomes meatier, with quite some bacon and ham as well as a little strawberry jam. We're far from 'old style' sherry, this is more multilayered than 'integrated'. With water: more spices, around ginger, a little thuja wood, molecules ending with -ol, tar... Mouth (neat): devilish indeed, massively ashy and tarry, it's almost like a blend of strong lapsang souchong with plum juice. With water: more tar, more ashes, more smoke, less plums. Finish: long and very tarry. The wine's fruits have been defeated. A little ginger again in the aftertaste, hinting at European oak but it may well not be European oak. Comments: as a 'Bowmore', I feel it's got a little too much sweet sherry. As a variant, I think that worked very, very well. Quite spectacular. SGP:657 - 88 points.
