It is always a challenge coming up with a sequel. But not for Bowmore. This maker of full-bodied scotches has spent 45 years trying to avoid the unfortunate trend. They came up with the Black Bowmore in 2007 and folloed it with the White Bowmore in 2008. And now, they are all set to complete the spirited trilogy with the Gold Bowmore.
This high quality scotch was distilled on November 5, 1964 and was left to mature in three bourbon casks and one Oloroso sherry cask, neatly tucked below sea level. Once all the final products were mixed, the Oloroso cask’s sherry and walnut flavors found their way into this heady mix, also lending it a darker, reddish, amber-like tint.
Referred to as the final nectar, this one has a beautiful blend of passion fruit, papaya and vanilla too. Topping it all is the all pervading smoky peat undertones characteristic to the Bowmore trademark. There will be only 701 bottle of the Gold Bowmore with a price tag of $6,250 on each. The bottle will sit in a Burr Elm box with hand-numbering.
