Beam Suntory has launched a third expression in its Devil's Casks Bowmore range that is matured in two different sherry casks.

Devil's Casks III Double the Devil uses dry Oloroso sherry casks and sweet Pedro Ximénez sherry casks at the maturation stage. The name is based on a local Islay legend that tells of the devil escaping in a cask of Bowmore bound for the mainland.

The Devil's Cask range was launched in 2013 before Morrison Bowmore was integrated into Beam Suntory in the wake of Suntory's US$16bn takeover of Beam Inc.
