Situated in the capital of Islay, the town that gives it its name, Bowmore maintains as much of the traditional method as is feasible for such an in-demand product:  they maintain their own floor maltings, source as much barley as possible from the island, and cut their peat from the adjacent fields. 

Some truly great sherry casks from the 1960's were used to make this superb bottling of Bowmore from 1979 to celebrate the distillery's bicentenary, this is considered, by some, as one of the best Bowmore's ever bottled. 

Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky.  Imported by P. Soffiantino & C S.p.A, Genova.

Gradi 43% vol, 75cl.
