Description

Barrel #136 yielded 180 bottles

Distilled on the 11th of September 2002 and bottled November 2017 at cask strength with no artificial colouring.

Barrels typically benefit from enhanced maturation due to the spirits greater level of exposure to wood compared to a much bigger Hogshead or butt, this Bowmore being a example of maturation beyond it's years.

Post bottling, the barrel used to mature this Bowmore was filled with Caol ila due to the high quality of the barrel and the delightful character found in this Bowmore.

ABOUT THE DISTILLERY

In 1779 the Bowmore distillery became the first licensed distillery on Islay of the Inner Hebrides, making it one of the oldest legitimate Whisky distilleries in Scotland. 

A host of owners have controlled this distillery since its inception including John Simpson, William & James Mutter, Sherriff's Bowmore Distillery Ltd, William Grigor & Sons Ltd. In 1963 Stanley P. Morrison ltd bought the distillery and increased the number of stills to four and provided further investment. However, it was in 1994 that the Suntory buyout took place which brought the distillery under Japanese ownership.

The distillery's iconic white buildings sit facing the Atlantic Ocean while the water source is from the winding Laggan River that meanders through peat bog and moss of Islay. The traditional methods of Whisky making still maintained by the distillery have ensured a consistent high quality of liquid that has gifted Bowmore among the finest reputations for Whisky.
