The Vatting Summer 2018

Two single malt whiskies from two legendary Islay distilleries, Bowmore and Laphroaig, were left to marry in a Sherry butt for over a quarter of a century. The resulting whisky gives a gentle nod to the Laphroaig and leads with the dominant flavours of Bowmore’s much-celebrated golden era. A sensational vatting of predominantly Bowmore with a touch of Laphroaig, a revelation to the single malt purist! This dram represents beauty in simplicity; the elegance of two rare, mature Islay malts given time to grow old together – a testament to the Art of Maturation.
