    Tasting Note by The Producer

    Nose:
    The senses are awakened to the deep aromas of soft, sweet, exotic
    fruits, complemented perfectly by Bowmore’s renowned gentle peat smoke.
    Palate:
    After 50 years maturing in Bowmore’s legendary No.1 Vaults, Black
    Bowmore 50 Year Old, The Last Cask To Be Rediscovered has developed a
    sublime elegance on the palate to reveal notes of tropical fruit
    including mango, papaya and pineapple as well as honeyed black truffle.
    Finish: A long, lingering mouth-feel carried by notes of Bowmore’s native Islay seabreeze.

    Islay distillery Bowmore has launched Black Bowmore 50 Year Old, the fifth and final release of its pioneering series of collectible luxury single malt whiskies, priced at £16,000 a bottle.

    Matured entirely in first fill Sherry casks, the 40.9% abv whisky was filled on 5 November 1964 and has lain in the distillery’s No 1 Vault for its entire life.The 159 hand-made bottles used for the fifth release were created using traditional glass-blowing techniques by Tain-based Glasstorm Studios.The presentation case, made from Scottish oak with silver inlays representing the five releases as growth rings of a tree, was designed and made by Glasgow-based cabinetmaker John Galvin Design.Black Bowmore 50 Year Old’s Hallowe’en launch event also marked the retirement of Bowmore's master distiller Eddie MacAffer, who started work at the distillery in 1966.‘This whisky is a tribute to all the craftsmen who have worked at the distillery for the past 50 years, and to the craftsmen who have worked on the package.’
