The Spirit(s) World – Bowmore Devil’s Casks 10 Years Old

There’s a Scottish legend that the devil once visited the Round Church in Bowmore, a village where the church had no corners so he had nowhere to hide. Spotted by the congregation in the church, the devil was chased through the village and into Bowmore Distillery’s famous No. 1 Vaults where he was lost.
He was believed to have escaped into a case of Bowmore bound for the mainland, a story that served as the inspiration for Devil’s Casks which is matured exclusively and uniquely in the finest first fill sherry casks for 10 years to bring out its intense qualities.
That being said, Bowmore® introduces the first Islay Single Malt whisky, non-chill-filtered and offered at cask strength – 56.9 percent ABV, with a suggested retail price of $89.99. Only 1,302 bottles are allocated for the US. You won’t want to miss offering this at the bar with a devilish smile.
