An incredibly sought after single malt, Bowmore has become one of Islay’s premier whisky choices. Originally a licensed distillery since 1816, the distillery has quietly been producing peated malt on islay for 200 years. Acquired by Stanley Morrison in 1963, it was then purchased by Suntory in 1994. Suntory would later go on to acquire Laphraoig in 2014 as well. Bowmore is a medium - heavy peated whisky, clocking in at around 25-30 PPM (Phenol parts per million), and is infamously known for their use of exceptional quality sherry casks. A comparatively small distillery by its output, Bowmore produces about 2.3 million litres of whisky per year. Bowmore bottlings have become legendary in many rights, with collectors heralding releases from the Morrison Bowmore years. Infamous bottlings such as the “Black Bowmore”s released in all sherry casks have become the jewel in many collections across the world,
