First released February 2017, Bowmore's No. 1 is a no-age statement release said to replace the brand's Small Batch whisky in the coming months. No. 1 gets its name from the distillery's legendary No. 1 vaults, the world's oldest Scotch maturation warehouse. It is aged in first-fill bourbon and bottled at 40% ABV.

Tasting Notes

"Rich aromas of lemon and honey notes but not much smoke. A very creamy mouthfeel reminiscent of miniature lemon tarts and the smoke/peat does not truly reveal itself until a grassy and slightly citric short finish. Not an overly complicated dram, but great value for the price."
