One of the oldest Scottish distilleries on Islay is Bowmore, which dates back to 1779 and is home to the oldest Scottish warehouse No.1 Vaults.
Thus, this brand became popular among fans of exceptional whiskeys and collectors thanks to the production method and specific smoked taste.
Right in the time before the holidays, the famous distillery introduces new Bowmore 1965 Single Malt Scotch Whiskey, which is the fourth edition within the 50 Years Old Vault Series.
Whiskey matured for 52 years in warehouses, and the end result is worth the wait.
This is one of the first whiskey which is then to pass through Bowmore’s then-new steam heated stills in 1965, which allowed for easy, controlled distillation – providing rich quality during the maturing process.
The whiskey is then matured in oak barrels that were previously used for bourbon, claret or sherry. Decades of prolonged maturation unlocked the rich fruity and smoky tastes found in Bowmore Whiskey from the 1960s.
When you smell it, whiskey offers the smell of black chocolate, sweet honey and rich fruit, which develops into inflammable hot and fresh flowering spring finishes.
The flavors are balanced with hints of dry fruits, apricots and jasmine. It is best to serve clean whiskey.
The whiskey will be packaged in beautiful hand-blown glass bottles with silver ornaments and is placed in hand-made boxes of oak wood.
Only 232 bottles will be released for sale this December, with a proposed retail price of as much as $30,000.
