The Whisky Shop “Bowmore 21 Year Old French Oak is here!” – Scotch Whisky News

Bowmore 21 Year Old French Oak is here!

This exceptional release partners the Islay distillers with Château Lagrange in the Bordeaux region of France. Maturing for more than 20 years in their famous wine barrels results in gourmet nuances of red fruits, dark chocolate, rich spices, and Manuka honey with a warming smoky finish typical of any Bowmore whisky.

A Scottish dram with a French soul. This exceptional bottling partners Bowmore with Château Lagrange, 3rd Grand Cru Classé in Saint Julien, Bordeaux. This is a special whisky resulting from a full maturation of more than 20 years in these famous French oak barrels and bottled at 48.4% abv. When paired with the classic coastal influence of the Bowmore Distillery, we have a dram with a deeply impressive harmony of flavours. The perfect whisky making alliance between Scotland and France!

Expect a sweet nose, with aromas of strawberry, manuka honey, and salty chocolate all arriving. Stewed orchard fruits develop on the palate, alongside sea salt, polished oak, and bitter Arabica coffee. The finish is warmly smoky and elegant, full of smooth chocolate and little bursts of fruit. A sensation.
