Bowmore 17 Year Old SMWS 3.243 / Feis Ile 2015
'Dark, smouldering flamenco gypsy'
Released exclusively to coincide for the Feis Ile 2015, this is the first time the Scotch Malt Whisky Society took part in the exclusive bottlings released throughout this one week in May.
The Scotch Malt Whisky Society (SMWS) was founded in 1983 by a group of friends lead by tax accountant Phillip ‘Pip’ Hills as a private members club. The concept behind the society was to source casks from all over Scotland which would then be bottled and made available exclusively to its members. Perhaps the most famous feature of these bottles are the unique codes. Each distillery is represented by a different number and the following digits indicate that particular release. That same year, the SMWS set up its first location in Leith’s Vault buildings in Edinburgh where it still stands today.
This is a single cask Bowmore 17 year old bottled at 57.1%.
One of 594 bottles released.
