Bowmore Devil's Casks 10 Year Old Batch #1
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.
Released in October 2013, this Bowmore barely even reached retailer shelves. The Devil is rumoured to have escaped Bowmore town in one of the distillery's casks after being chased from the famous church up the hill, which famously has no corners so and therefore no hiding places.
This release was matured exclusively in first fill sherry casks and bottled at cask strength. It was very limited, with only 540 bottles available in the UK and no more than 6,000 worldwide.
Please be advised that the absence of any specific condition reports does not imply that this bottle is in perfect condition. We recommend close inspection of all images prior to placing any bids, and any further information required can be provided upon request.
Due to the various ages of bottles and their seals, condition of liquid is at the buyer's discretion and no claim can be lodged against failure/leakage in transit.
