Master of Malt Announces the Release of a New Single Malt Scotch Whisky from That Boutiquey Whisky Company
Master of Malt New Bowmore
20 December 2012

Online retailer Master of Malt announces the release of a new Bowmore.

That Boutique-y Whisky Company's Bowmore – Batch 1 is a peated Single Malt Scotch Whisky from the island of Islay, bottled from a selected parcel of whisky without an age statement. The whisky is an excellent after-dinner drink with delectable notes of coastal peat, candied orange peel, and dried fruits.

The bottle is adorned with a hand-illustrated comic book style label featuring a cheeky schoolboy (clutching a bra!) being chased by the lifeguard from Bowmore's local swimming pool – which is warmed by the waste heat from the distillery’s copper pot stills.

That Boutique-y Whisky Company bottles Single Malt Whisky in the truest sense of the term: a blend of casks of malt whisky from a single distillery.

The whiskies are bottled without age statements for the simple reason that a batch may have some very old whisky in it, but could also have some younger whisky in it as well. Therefore the age statement could be misleading as it would have to be that of the youngest whisky in the bottle and this wouldn’t accurately reflect its contents. Furthermore, there is no way of knowing what the age of the parcels of stock used to create the next batch will be; therefore it would be very difficult to create a whisky with a consistent age statement between batches.

That Boutique-y Whisky Company's Bowmore – Batch 1 is now available from Master of Malt.

Bowmore – Batch 1 – 48.7% abv – 50cl – £52.95

Nose: Phenolic peat hits the nose first followed by waves of dried fruits – notably sultanas, cranberries, and dates – with a salty afterthought.

Palate: A velvety mouth-feel with drifting peat smoke and hints of iodine. Then there is a rush of candied citrus peels and masses of sherry-soaked dried fruit.

Finish: The finish is long and lingering with notes of pear, dried apricot, and beach bonfire smoke.
