Luxury drinks retailer The Whisky Shop presents the 2014 release of a sought-after, limited edition whisky from Islay – Bowmore Laimrig.
Scottish Gaelic for ‘pier’, Laimrig celebrates Bowmore’s ancient stone pier where the distillery’s barley would once have been unloaded and where the renowned single malt would have first set sail for the four corners of the world.
The cask strength, non-chill filtered Bowmore Laimrig 15 Years Old single malt whisky, has been finished in the finest Spanish sherry butts and has a rich, dark character and colour.
The limited edition release in the UK is exclusively available at premium drinks retailer, The Whisky Shop’s 22 stores nationwide and at www.whiskyshop.com. Tasting Notes
