Bowmore 1966 40 Year Old Cask 3317 Bottled 2006 - Duncan Taylor 70cl / 43.2%
A bottle of Bowmore 40 Year Old from independent bottler Duncan Taylor. This was distilled in May 1966 and bottled from a single cask in May 2006.
This is bottle number 44 of 171; it was bottled from cask number 3317.
Bowmore started distilling in 1779, though there is no evidence of whisky production until John Simpson was granted a licence to distil in 1816. The distillery passed through several hands, and even supplied a cask to Windsor Castle, before it was purchased by perhaps its most famous owner, Stanley P Morrison, in 1963. Bowmore maintains its own floor maltings which supply 40% of its barley, and is known for its medium-peated character. The whisky is left to mature in the No.1 Vaults, which is said to inhabit a unique microclimate, perfect for long periods of maturation.
