The newest collection from this legendary Islay distillery, launched in 2022, promised to release some of the Distillery's rarest expressions. The collection includes the last in the 50-year-old Vaults series, the Bowmore 1969, as well as the 2021 releases of Bowmore 30-year-old and Bowmore 40-year-old.

Bowmore 40-year-old is inspired by time and the sea front location of the Distillery. The colors and textures of Islay’s ancient stone and bleached driftwood are encompassed within this limited release deep mahogany Whisky bottled at a cask strength of 48.7% (97.4 proof). Upon pouring, a rich bouquet of honey, treacle, and exotic fruits combined with bees wax and caramel caress the nose, followed by a complex palate of pipe tobacco, chocolate, spices, leather, chestnuts, and pralines.

Limited edition: 1 of only 159 bottles released globally.

Blended Whiskies are the result of years of craftsmanship and dedication. A master blender does not simply wake up one day with a profound ability to create a cohesive and enjoyable liquid. From nosing the liquid to working out quantities of each different grain and malt to go into the blend, a master blender can take years, if not decades, to train.
Categories of Scotch Whisky: Single malt, Blended malt (formerly called Vatted malt), blended, single grain and blended grain Scotch.
Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
Whisky distilling goes way back to 1494 when the first recorded batch was made by a posse of monks who acquired about 60 gallons of barley and decided to turn it into "aqua vitae". They created the first 1,500 bottles of Scotch in History.
Beer and malt Whisky seem to have quite a bit in common. Both drinks begin with malted barley, which deliver the enzymes and sugars needed for fermentation when steeped in hot water. The two go their separate ways at the wash stage, where they're fermented or aged to become the adult beverages you know and love.
Scotch Whisky is seldom aged in new barrels. Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey casks are usually used for maturation. In addition to that, Whisky is often matured or finished in various wine casks such as Sherry or Port.
