Two single malts 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.
This dram represents beauty in simplicity; the elegance of two rare, mature Islay malts given time to grow old together.
