Monkey Shoulder

Monkey Shoulder
Monkey Shoulder

The term “monkey shoulder” harks back to our whisky making heritage. It’s a reference to a condition that maltmen sometimes picked up while working long shifts, turning the barley by hand. It had a tendency to cause their arm to hang down a bit like a monkey’s, so they nicknamed it “Monkey Shoulder”.

Zesty orange meets mellow vanilla, honey and spiced oak

Mellow vanilla with spicy hints

Super smooth

The basis for the blend is our widely acclaimed Girvan grain whisky.

Vacuum distilled at a lower temperature to make it a lighter and more delicate spirit, it is then aged in oak to give it a deeper, sweeter, soft fruit flavour, creating the perfect foundation.

The Bowmore Balance

12 Years Old | 40% abv | Puffs of peat smoke and pools of honey, sharpened by lemon zest.

Complex yet perfectly balanced, our 12 Years Old reflects the raw essence of Bowmore - thrashing waves, windswept landscapes and generations of tradition. Bowmore 12 Years Old has received much critical acclaim; the late, great whisky writer Michael Jackson proclaimed it "remarkably long and complex". We like to think of it as vanilla ice cream at a beach bonfire.

Tasting Notes

On the eye warm amber.

Breathe in subtle lemon and honey, balanced beautifully by Bowmore's trademark peaty smokiness.

Sip sweet and delicious heather honey and gentle peat smoke.

Savour the long, mellow finish.

LAPHROAIG 25YO
LAPHROAIG 25YO

TASTING NOTES

COLOUR : Bright Red Gold

NOSE: At bottling strength the aroma seems quite closed giving only a rich, sweet scent but a touch of water releases all the multitude of different flavours. The initial sweet, sherry sweetness is quickly followed but the time-honoured Islay peat tang. After this opening burst of flavour there is a smooth fruit ripeness that complements the tang of salt in the background.

BODY: Rich round and full.

PALATE: The burst of peat that fills the mouth is quickly restrained by a sherry sweetness that slowly develops into spicy apple fruitiness.

FINISH: Very long and warming leaving a distinct tang of Islay.

 

AUCHENTOSHAN 18YO
AUCHENTOSHAN 18YO

Tasting Notes

To The Eye

Deep golden summer barley.

To The Nose

Fresh tobacco leaf - then sweet with a hint of caramelised sugars, green tea and toasted almonds.

To The Tongue

A floral freshness with sweet barley sugar at first - this gently ebbs to reveal a tangerine zestiness. The palate is left alive and refreshed.

To The End

A long, lingering and well balanced dram that invigorates the mouth.

The Darkest Distinction

15 Years Old | 43% abv | Rich raisins and gentle smoke lead the way to a delicious chocolaty centre.

Matured in an inspired combination of both bourbon and sherry casks, it's the final three years spent in Oloroso sherry casks that gives Bowmore 15 Years Old 'Darkest', one of the most beautifully balanced Bowmores, the rich, deep colour reflected in its name, and its warming finish.

Tasting Notes

On the eye treacle dark amber.

Breathe in delicious dark chocolate, sun-dried fruits and a tell-tale wisp of Islay smoke.

Sip wonderful cedar wood and rich treacle toffee.

Savour the robust and complex finish with a hint of sherry tannin.

Breathe in classic Bowmore smokiness, perfectly tempered with creamy caramel, chocolate and ripe fruit aromas. 

Sip beautiful soft fruit and chocolate balanced with a light smokiness - incredibly complex.
