Bowmore 30 Year Old, is said to be a celebration of the Islay based distillery’s rich fruity and subtly smoky style. Delivering aromas of heather, bananas, peaches, pineapple, vanilla and butterscotch.  Whilst on the palate, offering up tropical fruits, honey, subtle peat smoke and hints of eucalyptus.

Commenting on the news, David Turner, Bowmore Distillery Manager, said: “By adding an ongoing 30- Year-Old Bowmore to the portfolio, we are able to showcase how vital time spent in cask shapes and influences our spirit, making it even more exceptional and characterful.  Each annual release will tell the rich stories of Bowmore, but importantly each will have their own unique style and character.  As for this release, this is another perfect example of classic Bowmore but with boundless depth and intrigue reflecting the long-standing interaction of spirit and wood.”
