Bowmore, Islay’s first single malt Scotch whisky, has announced the launch of The Devil’s Casks – just in time for Halloween. The new ‘brew’ has been matured exclusively – and unusually – for 10 years in the finest first fill sherry casks. This non chill-filtered, small batch release features Bowmore’s hot and fiery characteristics, deep mahogany colour and rich fruitcake flavour.
Created to celebrate one of Islay’s most famous tales – that the Devil himself was spotted in the round church of Bowmore and chased by local congregation down into the No. 1 vaults at the Bowmore distillery. Here, as the warehousemen were filling casks and loading them aboard the paddle steamer (The Maid of Islay) the devil was lost. It is believed he escaped in a cask of Bowmore bound for the mainland. The bottle also comes nestling in a deep red box which tells the story of the legend alongside smoke illustrations and a Devil’s pitchfork suggesting the Devil himself isn’t far away. 540 bottles of the Devil’s Casks has been released in the UK priced at £50.99 RRP, 56.9% ABV.
