Islay's oldest single malt distillery Bowmore will release a 10 year old single malt matured in ex-oloroso sherrycasks and red wine barriques. The single malt will be available from September to December 2016 in European and Asian Travel Retail stores. It could be a successor to bowmore10yothe hyped Devil's Cask whiskies they released earlier.

The dry oloroso Sherry is said to contribute dark, fruity aromas with tasting notes of figs and raisins, while the red wine “injects a fiery twist” with “dark chocolate fudge” and “spicy dark fruit” flavours.

If this one comes close to the 16yo Bordeaux wine cask, it will be an absolute stunner!
