Bowmore 15 Year Old Bourbon Casks / Feis Ile 2019
Islay’s oldest working distillery, Bowmore was established in 1779 and is now regarded as one of the most popular malts not only on Islay, but in the whole of Scotland. The distillery was acquired by Stanley P. Morrison in 1963, ushering in an era of iconic single malts, including the legendary Black Bowmore, credited by many as the genesis of whisky collecting, bottled in 1993. The distillery was bought under the control Suntory the year after (they had been stakeholders since 1989), and it remains one of the most collectible brands in Scotch whisky today. Bowmore is one of the few remaining Scottish distilleries to use its own floor maltings, providing them with 40% of their requirements.
The first of two releases in the Feis Ile 2019 collection from Bowmore, Islay's oldest distillery, this 15 year old was matured exclusively in first-fill ex-Bourbon casks and bottled at cask strength.
One of 3000 bottles.
