Scottish Gaelic for 'pier', Laimrig celebrates Bowmore's ancient stone pier where the distillery's barley would once have been unloaded and the celebrated Single Malt first set sail for the four corners of the world.
This Whisky Shop exclusive bottling of Bowmore takes its name from the Gaelic for ‘pier,’ referring to the ancient stone pier that once served the distillery. It is presented at cask strength after sherry cask finishing and with the addition of a little water it opens up beautifully. Finished in the finest Spanish sherry butts, the cask strength, non-chill filtered Bowmore Laimrig has a rich, dark character and colour.
The nose offers an instant aroma of coal tar soap, but the rich Oloroso sherry notes deliver an attractive counterbalance. On the palate it is full bodied, with a luxurious raisin and sherry taste, complemented by wood smoke. The finish is long and spicy and smoky .
