product Details

Bowmore 1955 40 Year Old

A very old Bowmore put into a bourbon hogshead cask on the 22nd of November 1955, then 20 years later it was transferred into a sherry cask prior to being bottled in 1995. 

The glass decanter was hand crafted by the artists of Caithness Glass, Scotland, each being individually numbered. The presentation case has been hand made from oak by the Master Cabinet Makers of Charles Kirkby & Sons, England. 

As a combination this is an impressive liquid presented in the most elegant of styles. 

The certificate states that this is bottle number 298 of only 306. However, the engraving on the bottom of the bottle states that it is number 286. 

Includes glass stopper, certificate of authenticity and padlock with key.
