14 May 2019
A bottle of Bowmore 40 Year Old single malt Scotch whisky. This was distilled on 8 October 1968, matured in a single cask, and bottled on 27 November 2008 by Duncan Taylor as part of the Peerless Range.
This comes with a miniature bottle of the same whisky.
This is bottle number 92 of 130; it was bottled from cask number 3824.
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.
