Bowmore 2001 Hand Filled 18 Year Old Cask #1520 / Sherry Cask

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 Hand Filled releases from Bowmore are distillery exclusive releases that visitors to the gift shop are able to bottle and label themselves. The first cask was made available during the Feis Ile festival on Islay in May 2013, and subsequent iterations have steadily become more and more popular to the point where they have become a must-have for every serious collector.

This was distilled on 27th November 2001 and bottled in 2020 at just over 18 years old.
