Scotch whiskey maker Bowmore has announced the release of 'Bowmore No Corners to Hide,' a new range of single malts that takes inspiration from an ancient Islay myth.
The new collection consists of two bespoke whiskies: a 23- and 32-year-old expression. Both versions are delivered in beautifully designed black and gold packaging that presents mythical illustrations created by Marvel and DC comics artist Frank Quitely.
“To get the call from Bowmore, a legendary icon in the world of whisky, offering me the opportunity of retelling the Islay Legend No Corners to Hide was hugely exciting," said Frank Quitely in a recent statement.
The 23-year old version was aged in ex-Bourbon American oak hogsheads before maturing for two years in Essencia barriques. Meanwhile, the 30-year old expression underwent a similar process but presents slightly darker tasting notes due to its prolonged time spent aging in ex-bourbon barrels.
