product Details

Bowmore 1980 Single Cask 23 Year Old #5777 / Including Still Decanter

A very well presented independent Bowmore, distilled in August 1980 and bottled in July 2004 as a 23 year old from cask #5777.

The story goes that #5777 was one of 12 casks filled when the distillery was woken during planned annual maintenance for a visit from Queen Elizabeth. Officially this visit took place on the 9th August, so we presume the 19th on the label is a mistake.

Bottle number 111 of only 236 bottles, presented in an attractive display case with a copper pot still decanter.

Please note this bottling in an unofficial release. While cask #5777 was filled during the Queen's visit to Bowmore in 1980, this should not to be mistaken with cask #5774, which was released officially in 2011 by Morrison Bowmore for the JTH Charitable Trust.
