This 54 year old single malt whisky from Bowmore is not only their oldest ever expression but also the oldest ever Islay single malt to be released. Distilled in 1957, the new spirit has been matured in second fill sherry fine oak casks for 43 years, then transferred into a second fill bourbon cask for the remainder of time. It spent 54 years in Bowmore's No.1 Vaults, which is the oldest maturation warehouse in Scotland.Only 12 bottles exist in the world, and this is one of the most sought-after bottles of whisky ever. These bottles have been sculpted from hand-blown glass to represent the waves that crash against the famous No 1. Vaults sea-facing walls. Within the glass there are flecks of shimmering platinum, and these were sculpted by Brodie Nairn and Nichola Burns, two of the world's leading glass artists. The bottle has a hand engraved platinum neck collar, displaying the bottle number and spirit strength. The Scottish oak presentation box also contains glasses and a water pitcher, sculpted by the same artists.This is one of only 12 bottles created, and was bottled at 42.1%abv.Incredibly fruity nose, blueberries and figs with a slight nutty almond note. Tropical fruits and oak reveal layers of sweet fruits as it hits the palate, ocean flavours with figs and eucalyptus. A trace of smoke and dark chocolate also on the tongue, with oak continuing from the palate to a long and fruitful finish, with cassis, bergamot and anise. Read More
