Bowmore's Much Anticipated Limited Edition, Devils Casks, Releases Second Edition | 15th August, 2014
The global hysteria of Bowmore’s Devils Casks is back with the second release in the series
Bowmore , Islay’s first distillery, is proud to announce the second release in its sell-out Devil’s Casks series.
Matured exclusively – and unusually – in the finest first fill sherry casks, the second small batch release of Devil’s Casks is still mischievous. Having mellowed under a cloak of smooth velvet and sublime sherry cask indulgence, it reveals even more of Bowmore’s devilish dark side. This small batch release is, quite simply, devilishly good! The expression gets its name from a legend nearly as old as the distillery itself. It was claimed that the Devil was once spotted and chased through the town, eventually hiding away in the distillery. After searching, the Devil was nowhere to be seen, having made his escape in a whisky barrel.
Rachel Barrie, Master Blender, Morrison Bowmore Distillers, said:
“The first edition of this expression was one of the most sought after whiskies of 2013. This second small batch release will no doubt emulate that success thanks to its devilishly tasty dark side, in debt to the first-fill sherry casks it has been carefully mellowed in.”
