The Devil's Casks III

Please wait Please wait
Currently Out of Stock

The final edition in Bowmore's The Devil's Casks trilogy, this has been aged entirely in sherry casks, creating a rich and intense whisky that combines notes of coffee, salted treacle and chocolate fudge with the distillery's characteristic medium smoke. A superb example of the popular combination of peated spirit and sherry-cask ageing.

    About Bowmore

    Bowmore Bowmore

    In 1779, Bowmore became the first distillery on Islay to receive an official licence. Bought by broker Stanley P Morrison in 1963, the decade saw some legendary bottlings, including the iconic Black Bowmore releases. Now under the ownership of Beam Suntory, the range includes the excellent entry-level 12 Year Old, along with Tempest, aged in first-fill bourbon casks, and a selection of limited releases, all of which are true to the distillery's medium-peated style.

      Excellent job by the Bowmore team, I thoroughly enjoyed the smell, taste and finish of this whiskey. I am a big fan of Oloroso Sherry Finish and Oloroso & Pedro Ximemenez Sherry Casks. Bowmore understand it, NON-CHILL FILTERED and 56.7%. alc./vol. I only hope there is no E-150 added, that would be a shame, there is enough rich cask color. Add a few drops of water to cut the alcohol and enjoy the flavors.

      my wife and I are big fans of bowmore and thought we were in with a treat at the PRICE bottle bracket. It didn't take long before I felt like I'd been robbed. This young brash whisky not quite ready for a bottle at THIS PRICE and call it a devil because it still reeks of distillate, it's a real disappointing effort from Bowmore. Luckily I had a Highland Park 18 at hand to cheer myself back up. I suppose at this alcohol level in this bottling I can use it to clean paint brushes. Not often I get this disappointed in a bottle
