  1. Delord Bas Armagnac XO 10 yr 200ml Mini's
    Delord Bas Armagnac XO 10 yr 200ml Mini's

    Situated in Bas-Armagnac, vineyards are made up of Colombard, Ugni Blanc and Folle Blanche grape varieties. The distillery is to be found in the village of Lannepax, the ancestral home of the Delord family. The distillation, the most essential and fascinating stage in the production of Armagnac, takes place at the beginning of November through to the end of December. Their old Sier Armagnac alambics, that they wouldn't part with for all the gold in the world, produce less than 30 litres of eau-de-vie an hour. Delord cellars contain old treasured vintages and include more than 700 oak barrels that protect and age the Armagnac eau-de-vie dating from the 20th Century to the present day.

    Delord thanks to their vision have stored such quantities of good Armagnacs for such a long time that they have the resource to be very competitive in price for the same quality. They also concentrate on Armagnac styles, very rounded, soft and easy to drink, that they are amongst the most successful producers.

    Caramel, candy, vanilla, nut and a whole selection of tasting goodies. A rustic opening which rounds out all the way with hints of rancio that travels from fruitiness to sweetness and vice versa. A spiral of dried fruit, citrus peel, vanilla, caramel, spiced oak, grape, nutty, rancio, prunes, cinnamon.

    THE FIRST ISLAY SINGLE MALT WHISKY SINCE 1779
    The Bowmore Distillery has stood on the shores of Loch Indaal, a sea loch that opens out into the Atlantic ocean, since 1779. The distillery’s proximity to the sea plays a vital role in shaping the final character of our spirit, which breathes in the salty sea air all the while it’s maturing. It’s Bowmore’s unique combination of the purest water from the Laggan River, floor-malted barley that has been carefully smoked in our peat-fired kiln, the finest oak casks left to mature in our No. 1 Vaults, Islay’s natural environment and a dedicated team of craftsmen that together create the perfect balance for which Bowmore is known and loved.

    Our Craftsmen
    Our whisky is made the same way today as it has always been, by a dedicated team of craftsmen, using time-honoured techniques passed down from one generation to the next. A job for life, our Distillery Manager has worked at Bowmore for over 40 years.

    The Legendary No. 1 Vaults
    The oldest maturation warehouse in Scotland and the only one below sea level, the No.1 Vaults’ dark, damp and cold conditions are perfect for maturing whisky. It’s here that our single malts spend their long lives maturing in specially selected oak casks, gradually developing the finest of flavours.

    The Malt Floors
    Bowmore is one of an ever decreasing handful of distilleries to produce its own floor malted barley. Every four hours, the barley is still laboriously hand turned by our Maltmen using traditional tools, just as it has always been. It’s an expensive process by modern standards, but one that’s well worth preserving judged by the results.

    ABV 40%
    Subtle notes of lemon and honey are bound together with the distinctive Bowmore smokiness. Warm and delicious with subtle dark chocolate and peat smoke followed by a long and subtle finish.

    Producer's Notes

    NOSE

    Broad and medium-weight with citrus peels, ginger snap biscuits. Sweet and with great depth. Apricot aromas develop then drift towards fruit salad. After a short time the wood come to the fore and water helps to release baked fruit.

    PALATE


    A complicated palate where the initial nose would lead you to expect plump fruits, what you get is a surprisingly dry element. The palate fleshes out as the first impact of the nose fades. Adding water brings out the caramelised elements balanced with the wood elements expected of a 15 year old.

    FINISH


    Firm and slightly dry.
