BOWMORE 50 ans

Single Malt, Scotland / Islay 70cl Ref: 17860

Distilled one very cold day in December 1961 and laid down in two ex-bourbon hogshead casks, this Bowmore 50 Years Old has spent half a century maturing in Bowmore’s legendary No. 1 Vaults. Today, only 200 bottles of this truly exceptional single malt remain – 50 of which will be released each year between 2013 and 2016. Bowmore 1961 is a celebration of not just one mastercraft but many, starting with the time-honoured skills of this small distillery’s team that cold winter’s day on Islay.

Product details

Tasting note

  • Appearance : Warm honey gold.
  • Nose : Sweet almond frangipane in coconut milk. Then we get the fruitiness of apricots and crystallised oranges, together with hints of black truffles and tea tree oil.
  • Palate : A burst of ripe fruits – figs, fleshy papaya, pomegranate and pineapple – intermingled with black truffles and gentle smoke.
  • Overall : The evolving finish of almond cake and caramelized pears interwoven with subtle peat oils.
The brand

The brand

Bowmore, founded in 1779 in the town of the same name on the Loch Indaal coast, is the oldest distillery on the Isle of Islay. The No.1 Vaults has played a major role in building its renown, not simply because of the quality of the casks it holds, but also because of its exceptional location. It is actually located below sea level, with the seawall acting as the one of the walls of the vault. The distillery is also famous for its medium-peated bottlings and the special cask finishes that have won it huge acclaim. Still operating according to traditional methods, its barley is partially malted on site. Find out more
