Bowmore 18 Years Old Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky has just been voted the "Best in Show Whisky" at the San Francisco Spirits Competition, one of the foremost drinks competitions in the world. It was also awarded a Double Gold medal. Twenty-four top judges, from across the American drinks industry, blind-tasted all the Scotch whiskies, from the youngest to the oldest, but conclusively agreed that Bowmore 18 Years Old, from the small Hebridean Island of Islay, was 'simply the best’. The Competition’s Executive Director Anthony Dias Blue said, "A brilliant, perfect, remarkably delicious expression by Bowmore; another in a series of winners that span the entire history of the San Francisco Spirits Competition."
Nose: Pungent, citrus. Stewing fruit, hints of damp wood and a very soft smoke.
Palate: Spirity at first, then gives way to perfume, fruit, plum jam. A good sweetness, peat smoke, grapey.
Finish: Seville marmalade, blossom, dark peat.
