Nose: Mineralic and salty with hints of nettle or even smoky rooibos (red bush) tea. Tamed smoke and earthy notes of ceramic, wet clay and a pottery kiln are balanced by sweet lavender, and shellfish.
Palate: Several decades in the cask has tamed this Bowmore’s traditional floral smoke into a sizzle of citrus soaked shellfish gently searing on a wood fire. The mouthfeel is chalky and tingles like Edinburgh rock melting on the tongue.
Finish: A mouth drying gentle smoke dawdles on the palate for quite a while. What an extraordinary Islay whisky.

The Wemyss Family itself comes from Fife, Scotland, and their home since the turn of the 13th century, is Wemyss Castle which sits on top of an outcrop of rocks and caves three hundred feet above the Firth of Forth looking back towards Edinburgh.
The family have had a longstanding passion for malt whisky and their connections with the industry date back to the turn of the 19th century when John Haig (founder of Haig's) built his first distillery on Wemyss land. Even today barley from the Wemyss Estate is prized by many of the leading distillers, and Cameron Bridge distillery is located just a few miles from the castle.
With this passion came the gradual realisation that, even for the knowledgeable consumer, much of the malt whisky terminology can be confusing. Our range of hand crafted malts was conceived with the aim of making them more accessible and understandable. We use the taste and aromas of the individual whiskies to identify each bottling, rather than the distillery, so the consumer can easily understand the style being purchased.
