About Blackadder Raw Cask 2001 Bowmore Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Situated along the shores of Long Indaal, Bowmore Distillery was founded in 1779 by John Simpson. The distillery is the oldest distillery on the island of Islay and the second oldest in Scotland. Its unique location — Long Indaal suffers from steady gusts of wind and strong eddies that make its waters especially hazardous — plays an integral part in defining the lush, rich character of the single malt whisky it produces.

Bowmore Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made from barley that has been expertly cultivated in the rolling hills of Scotland. Once the barley has been harvested, it is malted and peated at the distillery — Bowmore remains one of the few Scottish distilleries that continues to hand-turn, malt, and peat its own barley. Unlike some other distilleries on Islay, however, the drying process is much shorter at Bowmore — only 15 hours — and utilizes only half as much peat, resulting in a whisky with a robust yet still mild smoky flavor.

After the barley has been malted and peated, it is mashed and fermented with pure water drawn from Laggan River. The water has spent two millennia percolating in the ancient rock formations and peatbogs of Islay, giving Bowmore Whiskey its distinctive, chewy body and subtle mouthfeel. Then, the fermented barley is twice distilled through Bowmore’s copper-pot stills before being left to mature in the distillery’s seaside, underground maturation vaults.

Blackadder Raw Cask 2001 Bowmore Single Malt Scotch Whisky was distilled in 2001 and matured in Cask No. 20060 for 13 years. In September 2014, the whisky was bottled at cask strength without the use of any filtration whatsoever. As a result, the whisky contains natural oils and fats that are often removed from whiskies that have undergone chill or bright filtration. In addition, the lack of filtration results in a small amount of sediment remaining at the bottom of each bottle.

Blackadder Raw Cask 2001 Bowmore Single Malt Scotch Whisky has a bold aroma of peat, iodine, oak and chili peppers that gives way to subtle notes of caramel and vanilla that complement an intense and peaty flavor profile.

The whisky was bottled exclusively for the Jack Rose Dining Saloon in Washington, D.C. but we were able to get our hands on a few bottles (only 266 were ever made). Pick up a bottle today!

About Scotch

Scotch is the most popular whisky in the world and is considered the king of them all! There are five whisky regions in Scotland (six if you count the not officially recognized Islands), and each of them produces spirits with unique properties and distinct tasting notes. (The type of grain used determents the type of the scotch.)


Malt whisky is made of malted barley, and grain whisky uses other grains like corn or wheat. Most of the time, a whisky is blended from different distilleries hence the name blended scotch, but if a malt whisky is produced in a single distillery, we get something extraordinary called a single malt.
