Bowmore 1972 30 Year Old Rare Reserve Bottled 2002 - Signatory Vintage 70cl / 49.5%
A bottle of Bowmore 30 Year Old single Islay malt Scotch whisky. This was distilled on 18 February 1972, matured in a single cask and bottled on 19 February 2002 by Signatory Vintage as part of the Rare Reserve series.
This is bottle number 111 of 198; it was bottled from cask number 930.
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.
