13 August 2019
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 August 2006. This bottle comes in a presentation box.
This is bottle number 112 of 153; it was bottled from cask number 3315.
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.
