Bowmore 17-Year Warehousemen’s Selection

Yes, it is still too warm outside for whisky but after we stuffed ourselves silly yesterday, we cranked the AC up and drank a dram of our Bowmore Warehousemen’s Selection to help ease our stomach. This is a distillery exclusive bottle we acquired during our visit to the Bowmore Distillery. Only 3000 of these were…

Bowmore: Distillery Tour

If you walk around Bowmore right as kilns are firing up, the smell of peat surrounds the town. For any peat smoke whisky lover, this smell is heavenly. This was the smell that welcomed us when we arrived at Bowmore and, as it was the town we stayed in, it was the smell we enjoyed…

Bowmore 15-year-old darkest sherry cask finish

Yikes! I might have sounded a bit mean saying that The Glenlivet 15 wasn’t that great of a gift since my boyfriend was the one who gave it to me. He has long since made up for it and was the one who also gave me the whisky we are talking about today, a Bowmore…
