Bowmore Phoenix Edition – 37 Year Old
China exclusive | 52.1% | The second release in the mythical guardians series
A RARE AND ELUSIVE BEAST
Bowmore® has a proud and rich history of producing exclusive expressions for the Asian markets. Bowmore Phoenix Edition is the second in our annual series celebrating this tradition by showcasing the Bowmore kanji symbol on our packaging. Born on Islay, an island steeped in heritage and legend, we pay homage to our origins through the story of the Phoenix. A symbol of virtue and grace, the rare appearance of the Phoenix foretells harmony for the people – just as we seek harmony and balance in this rare 37-year-old spirit. This expression has been crafted from a parcel of second-fill sherry casks hand selected and watched over for more than three decades. The whisky was then transferred into seasoned first-fill sherry casks for a finish of two to three years.
