Bowmore 1967 40 Year Old - Premier Range 5cl
23 July 2019
A miniature bottle of Bowmore 40 Year Old. This was distilled on 20 October 1967, matured in bourbon casks, and bottled at cask strength on 5 June 2008 as part of the Premier Range series.
Bowmore started distilling in 1779, though there is no evidence of whisky production until John Simpson was granted a licence to distill 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.
