Description

A bottle of Gold Bowmore 44 Year Old, the final of the three limited edition releases. This was distilled on 5 November 1964, matured in three bourbon casks and one oloroso sherry cask, and bottled in 2009.

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.

This is bottle number 027 of 701.
