Bowmore 1991 16 Year Old Port Matured Whisky

A Limited Edition Bottling from Bowmore.
Non Chill Filtered - Port Matured and Bottled at Natural Cask Strength.

This limited edition is the third and final in a series of different wood matured expressions of Bowmore. It has spent its sixteen years maturing in 24 port casks held safe in the famous Bowmore Vaults below sea level.
The hand crafting of this exceptional malt whisky started back in 1991. The barley was carefully malted, hand turned and traditionally peat kiln dried at the distillery. After mashing, fermentation and slow distillation, through Bowmore's large copper stills, the spirit was laid down to mature in fresh port pipes.
For sixteen years the casks have quietly rested, undisurbed in the deep, dark Bowmore Vaults. Finally, the almost mahogany coloured rich spirit was decanted straight from the casks to the bottle. This is truly a fine expression of the Bowmore Distillers' art.

The result is a Bowmore ruby red in colour, the aromas are big and luscious - stewed fruit berries, sweet black cherries and hints of bitter dark chocolate underlined by a lighter Bowmore smokiness. On the palate it is warm and rounded, packed full of fruit flavours of brambles and damson jam followed by a subtle earthy peat smoke. The finish is deliciously warm and satisfying.

It has taken sixteen years of dedication and passion to create this limited edition port matured vintage Bowmore.
We trust you will enjoy and savour the results.
