Bowmore The Devil's Casks III

Double the devil

  • Bowmore The Devil's Casks
  • Bowmore Distillery, Lochindaal (Islay)
  • NAS
  • 56.7% ABV
  • First fill Oloroso & Pedro Ximenez sherry casks

We all knew this release from Bowmore was coming. The third Devil's casks is a combination of first-fill Oloroso casks and Pedro Ximenez sherry casks. And they dropped the age statement. This isn't a ten year old single malt like the previous two releases.

The back label reads:
"On the eye deep mahogany. Breathe in a cornucopia of rich, dark exotic fruits, sultana, mango and raisin, fused with earthy angelica root and treacle toffee. Sip the smooth rounded taste of date oil, chocolate fudge and salted reacle, warmed by orange-laced Aruba coffee. Savour the long-lasting finish of smoked fruitcake, blood orange and sea salt."

Update 21/10/2015: Apparently the bottling is already for sale in some german webshops for €239 - €249. And Bowmore served it at Whisky Live Warsaw. Seems like the people at Bowmore (or the whisky shops) are trying to get the cash away from the speculators...

Update 22/10/2015: The official PR from Bowmore has been sent. Price has been set at £190 / €260 and launch date should be October 26. And this might have been the final Devil's Casks installment...
