The Devil's Casks III

When the folk of Bowmore formed an angry mob to chase the devil out of the church (which is of course round, offering him nowhere to hide), down the road and through the distillery, it was assumed that he must have made his escape in a cask heading to the mainland aboard the Maid of Islay. Some first fill sherry casks at Bowmore make you wonder though, how can whisky be so devilishly delicious? This third and final Devil's Casks release uses both oloroso and Pedro Ximénez casks for the first time.

This bottle was part of a private collection - if you'd like more detailed photos just get in touch!

Reviews for Bowmore The Devil's Casks III - Double The Devil
The Strength is the key!
I love this. I bought this a while back and i have about 1/3rd the bottle left .I mix this with one ice cube in a GC glass and then pour something less than a double. I like to make things last and enjoy the taste.

Wow. if you like the Bowmore 18 then this is not far from it. But feels like a more concentrated version. The name is apt as you have cinamon and spices to greet you on the nose, same with the taste which is rare to get allignment of both. But this is no joke. It lasts a while

What's with all the cheapskates?
To all you whiney twats who "reviewed" the whisky but never bought it or drank it, and only complained at the price because you are cheapskates, you should be ashamed. What gives you the right to review something that you never tried? Seriously, if you are too cheap to enjoy good whisky, that's fine, but why do you have to advertise your cheapness, and disparage a good whisky in the process?
BTW, I DID buy it, and I DID drink it, and my star rating does reflect my opinion of the actual N/T/F of the whisky.

To expensive
When I drink this I’m thinking about how nice the 15 year old Bowmore is. At this price it shouldn’t be like that. Waste of money and pretty disrespectful from bowmore.

Amazing Dram
What a delicious dram. After having the first two, this one is the best in my opinion. The PX casking I think is what makes the difference in this one. The combination of both oloroso and PX give this one complex sweetness that is impressive. I could sit down all day with a glass of this figuring out all the different flavor notes that pop. Truly amazing and worth the price. Too bad that people give one star review to something they have not tasted. How ignorant. Ratings should be for the quality of a liquor not someones opinion of being over priced. The ignorants below gave this a 1 star because of the price even though they did not taste it. LOL. Babies. Let me get you guys a WAAMBULANCE to cry in.

Fantastic Sherry/Smoke bomb
I notice that it's 4-5 stars if purchased in North America, $110.00 Canadian, about 60 pounds or 0-1 star and no purchase in Europe. Why the difference I have no idea.
