Price - EUR65 per one-litre bottle

Beam Suntory is to launch a ten-year-old Bowmore single malt exclusively into European and Asia-Pacific Travel Retail.

The new extension, which Beam Suntory said is "inspired" by Bowmore's Devil's Cask series, will only be available until December. The company said the launch is timed for the gifting season across its markets.

The whisky is matured in Oloroso sherry casks and red wine barriques, resulting in a "velvety liquid with intense flavours of treacle and smooth leather with a twist of fiery spice, fruit and sweetness", Beam Suntory said.

The Devil's Cask name is based on a local Islay legend that tells of the devil escaping in a cask of Bowmore bound for the mainland.
