It’s the last edition of this premium 1964 single malt whisky
Announcing the release of the Black Bowmore 50 Year Old the company Beam Suntory attracted a lot of attention some days ago. According to the press release the last one of five limited bottlings of this long matured single malt whisky is on the market since 1 November 2016. Only 159 bottles are available worldwide and most of them will find their place in a whisky collection somewhere. Here are some more information about the Black Bowmore 50 Year Old.
Last one of Black Bowmore 1964 series
The first new make for the Black Bowmore was distilled 5 November 1964 at the distillery that is situated in the capital of Islay. From 1993 to 2007 four bottlings had been released as Black Bowmore after the whisky had been matured in Bowmore’s warehouse No. 1 Vaults. It is probably the oldest whisky warehouse of the world and a really legendary one. The name Black Bowmore refers to the deep, dark color which the single malt whisky got from its maturation in first fill Oloroso sherry casks. The new release Black Bowmore 50 Year Old The Last Cask is the eldest one of the little series and according to Bowmore it will be the last one.
Tropical fruits and peat smoke combined
The Black Bowmore 50 Year Old developed during the long term maturation in two Oloroso sherry casks to be a very elegant whisky. In 2007 the two casks were vatted and the whisky stayed in one cask in the warehouse for further maturation. The single malt whisky combines tropical fruits and those of honeyed black truffle. The taste is complemented by the typical Bowmore peat smoke. After those 50 years of maturation the Black Bowmore The Last Cask now presents a dark color and 40.9 % ABV. It is sold in valuable handmade bottles
Bowmore is one of the leading whisky labels
Distillery Manager David Turmer, whose grandfather had worked at the Bowmore distillery when the Black Bowmore was distilled, is very proud of this bottling. It presents the rich, deep aroma and quality that Bowmore stands for and that made i tone of the leading single malt whiskies of the world. If you can’t afford the 16.000 pound in the moment to buy a Black Bowmore 50 Year Old what about a Bowmore Darkest 15 Year Old or a Devil’s Cask III?
