The Collector´s Package – complete your Bowmore series
And here is what you get with the Collector´s Package:
“Bowmore Atlantic Sea Salt”
is the first release of the Vault Edition. It is bottled at 51,5% cask strength, as also the second release „Bowmore Peat Smoke“. This limited edition represents the salty-maritime flavors, which are accompanied by a very fine hint of smoke.
With the perfect combination of sweet summer fruits and blackberries, vanilla and honey flavors, a slightly bitter cocoa note and of course the maritime note of the no. 1 Vault Warehouse Bowmore created here a profound single malt, which is the perfect choice for lovers of complex whiskies with a delicate smoke content.
“Bowmore Peat Smoke”
is the second bottling of the Vault Edition, also a cask strength bottling with 50.1%. This one is dedicated to the peat smoke aromas of Bowmore, which are unique to Bowmore. Bowmore does not buy their malt, but produces it specifically for this taste and dries it in a special process over peat smoke. This typical Bowmore taste is celebrated with this bottle.
It comes with aromas of peat coal, but also glowing wood and a leathery character. The perfect combination with fruity aromas of sweet dates and figs, as well as a touch of mint and of course the maritime touch of the No. 1 Vault warehouse results in a unique complex Scotch. A MUST for fans of strong and smoky whiskies.
About Vault Edition:
The four whiskies of this series are dedicated to the legendary warehouse “No. 1 Vault”, which is considered the oldest whisky warehouse in the world. It was built in 1779 and is partially below sea level. This creates a special maritime atmosphere, which also diffuses into the stored barrels and so adds special characteristic maritime, salty-mineral flavors.
Many famous and some over 50 years old Bowmore creations mature in this warehouse.
And that’s where also the Vault Editions comes from. The 4 strictly limited bottlings are each characterized by one of the 4 main flavors of Bowmore whiskies: salty / maritime, smoky, fruity and sweet. The Vault Edition is an interesting series that gracefully represents Bowmore’s repertoire in a sophisticated whisky collection. The last 2 bottles are not on the market yet, so you are right in time to start this great collection now. We are all excited and looking forward to them to complete our Bowmore shelves.
is dedicated to a “thunderstorm”. It’s up to you to find out if this would be the storm that the distillery located directly on the seaside has to face, or even the “thunderstorm” of flavors in the glass. In fact, the Bowmore Tempest is full of life and expressiveness. This “non-chill-filtered” single malt is bottled with cask strength, which decreases slightly with each annual batch, but Batch 6 is still at 54.9%. Its bright golden color is beautifully underlined by the sea blue cover box with the motives of storm waves.
The Bowmore Tempest matured for 10 years in ex-Bourbon barrels made of American white oak and is a single malt with assigned age on the bottle. It is bottled only as a small batch release, limited to about 12,000 bottles per year.
The Tempest combines spicy aromas of pepper, cinnamon and cloves with sweet vanilla and honey notes of the white oak, accompanied by the aroma of grated lemon zest and the typical mineral scent of the sea, which is typical for Bowmore. A storm of flavors – perfect fit to the atmosphere of a dark winter evening, an autumn walk by the sea or just the start into an energetic night!
