1957 | 42.1% abv | Bowmore 1957 is the oldest and rarest Bowmore ever
In October 2012, we released our oldest ever single malt scotch whisky – the exceptionally rare Bowmore 1957, 54 Year Old. Distilled in 1957 and bottled in 2011, this marvel has been lying in wait in the finest oak casks for more than half a century. With only 12 bottles in existence, not only is this the oldest whisky we have ever released, it is also the oldest Islay single malt scotch whisky ever released.
On The Eye: Glistening warm gold
Breathe In: An elixir of blueberries and wild figs with mellow almonds, tropical fruit and rich oaky overtones
Sip: Layer upon layer of sweet and refined ocean tastes with soft blueberries, cassis and figs, sea salt and fresh eucalyptus
Savour: Long and whispering finish of cassis, bergamot and star anise
