Bowmore 23 Year Old No Corners To Hide 51.5%
A devilishly good 23 year old whisky from Bowmore released as part of the ’No Corners to Hide’ series. This Bowmore captures a moment in time; with a story as captivating and as analogous to as the myth it celebrates. Legend has it that the devil visited the church in Bowmore in 1837. The church was round so the devil had no corner to hide and was chased out by the villagers. Seeking refuge in the distillery the devil vanished. It is thought that the devil made his escape by hiding in one of the casks headed by boat to the mainland.
The initial decades of maturation in American oak hogsheads reflects a timely occupation in cask, much like the devil’s own alleged escape. What followed was an unusual journey into Essencia® barriques, a rare ‘Rose Oak’ dating back to the 1830s, to bring an exceptionally deep, powerful and distinctive character to the fore. A limited edition whisky of only 6666 bottles released worldwide.

Palate: Sweet notes of golden syrup, acacia honey and marzipan with peaty sooty taste and oily peppery mouthfeel.
Finish: Creamy, lightly salty, and spicy.
