Black Bowmore 50-Year-Old

black-bowmore-50-year-old-the-last-cask-bottle-cabinetBowmore has unveiled a limited-edition £16,000 bottle of 50-year-old single malt – the fifth and final release from its Black Bowmore series. Black Bowmore was first distilled on 5 November 1964 at the Bowmore distillery on Islay. After four releases – the first in 1993 and the fourth in 2007 – one final cask was discovered in the corner of Bowmore’s No.1 Vaults, which was used to create this 50-year-old expression.

Launched on 1 November, just 159 bottles of Black Bowmore 50-Year-Old have been produced. Having spent 50 years maturing in cask, it is the most aged expression of the Black Bowmore series. The Islay single malt has been matured in first-fill oloroso Sherry casks, which have imparted a “deep, black pearl darkness to the colour of the whisky”, with notes of tropical fruit and honeyed black truffle, along with the signature peat smokiness of Bowmore.

RRP: £16,000.
