Bowmore // Islay, Scotland
Jose-Massu-EspinelReviewed July 30, 2022 (edited January 2, 2023)(Insert creepy movie narrator voice here before reading) It is widely known, the the devil appears every now and then on the Isle of Islay. But people on the Isle have never been scared of him. That is why they always chase him to kill him, but the devil has the custom of entering Bowmore's church, where he hides in the corner. The locals, tired of this situation, decided to demolish the church, and replaced it with a round one, where the devil HAD NO CORNERS TO HIDE. So, the day came where the devil was chased again... he entered the round church, and he saw no place to escape his fate. One window was left open, he threw himself through it. He ran to Bowmore distillery and when he reached the warehouse, he splitted into tiny little devils, and then he hid for ages, in what is now known as THE DEVIL'S CASK. This allegedly true story, is the theme for Bowmore's lastest hit, a refurbished release of the once glorious "Bowmore's Devil's Cask". "NO CORNERS TO HIDE", has been created by making a lovely box and label by the artist Frank Quietly, who is a cartoon drawer, which hits like Batman, and X-men. Bottled at 51.5%abv, this is a 23yo expression of Bowmore, matured initially in ex-bourbon American oak hogsheads, and then two years in "Essencia barriques". These casks are built by Tonnellerie Demptos, a French cooperage. On the nose, Perfection. Bbq sauce, bacon, honey; strong earthy peat. Cherry syrup appeared out of nowhere. Old oranges. After the first sip, the aroma changed, bacon intensified; it released toffee mixed with solid sweet sherry and peat. Orange candy. Plastic And glazed pork. On the palate, you won't ever find something better than this. Old oranges, Hay peat and sulphur. Sherried: Red fruitiniess, sherry spices, sherry sweetness; sherry perfection. Aftertaste is extraordinary. Smokey. Sherried lovely red fruity finish. AMAZING SYRUPY FINISH MIXED WITH PEAT, just WOW!; Smokey maraschino cherries. Overall, i believe this is one of my favorite whiskies ever. This is just perfect in every sense: sweet, peaty, syrupy, powerful, flavorful, etc.; If i can give you some advice, do not drink this ever, two reasons for that: 1.- more for me; and, 2.- this can ruin all other whiskies for you. My score for it is 1000 over 100. Yes you read that right, a thousand points, now let's listen to ACDC's Highway to Hell, Slàinte Mhath!!
