Bowmore, 12 Y

Bowmore, 12 Y

Islay

The Bowmore Distillery is located on the Scottish island of Islay. Because the distillery is located below sea level it has ideal conditions for maturation of whisky in re-fill-, sherry and bourbon casks. The water for the production comes from rainwater from the hills, flowing over the peat soil. Islay malts are famous for their peaty, smoky flavor and this 12 years matured Bowmore is no exception.

Isle of Jura

Next to Islay is the island of Jura. The Isle of Jura distillery has been here since 1810. On the island live 200 people and 5000 deer. The water used by Jura comes from a lake nearby, the "Loch a' Bhaile-Mhargaidh". This water is peat-containing and gives the whisky a light soily taste. The malt for the whisky is not peated, but dried with hot air. This 10-year-old Jura has matured on bourbon casks and is firm and floral.

Laphroaig - Quarter Cask

Laphroaig - Quarter Cask

Islay

This is a single malt whisky from Islay. Because in the smaller 125 liter 'Quarter Casks', the spirit has about 30% more contact with the wood during maturation than with standard casks, this process is much more intensive. The additional influence of the oak gives a softer, sweeter character to the flavor, beautifully combining with the Laphroaig characteristic peat smoke.

Knockando, 12 Y

Speyside

The Knockando distillery (1898) is located on the river Spey. Knockandu does not bottle at a predetermined age, but only when the right maturity has been reached.
