Bowmore Distillery was founded in 1779 and is located on the island of Islay, just off the coast of Scotland. It was one of the first distilleries in the country, and it is still in operation today distilling some absolutely brilliant whiskies. The distillery is opn to the public for tours and tasting. The Single Malt Scotch produced by Bowmore is known for its light and citrusy undertones. However, there are a seveal of richer malts for those that enjoy a heavy and deep taste to their whisky (these tend to have chocolate undertones). It doesn’t matter what single malt whisky you sample from their range though, almost everything Bowmore produces has an incredibly delicate smoky note.
