product Details

Bowmore 1957 75cl / US Import

Distilled back in January 1957, this was matured in Bowmore's Number one Vault. The whisky was matured for 38 years and then bottled due to the risk of the liquid falling bellow 40% ABV. So this has been bottled at a natural cask strength, which is a missleading statement when 40.1% is the alcohol by volume. 

The bottle is presented in a crafted wooden box which has it's own lock and key.

This is bottle number 515 of 861.
