40 Years Old | 42% abv | A deliciously fruity, gently smoky masterpiece.

Hand-Crafted To Perfection

One of our rarest single malts, only 53 bottles of Bowmore 40 Years Old were ever created. Hand-crafted to perfection, this remarkable spirit had been maturing in a single, specially selected American bourbon cask since 29th March 1969 and is presented in an individually hand-blown and sculpted bottle, adorned with a hand-engraved solid silver neck collar.


Tasting Notes

On the eye glistening warm gold.

Breathe in smoked oak, delicious sweet vanilla cream, poached pears and gently earthy peatiness.

Sip wood spice, orange peel and fresh pink grapefruit and sweet pear.

Savour the mild peat smoke.
