WhiskySponge Edition No. 50 2003 Bowmore 17 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Regular priceSale price
Technically this was distilled in 2003, and filled into a refill sherry butt, however it spent some time out of wood before being put back into another refill sherry butt. Hence the 17 year old age statement.
The Sponge chose to bottle this with slight reduction at 53% as they felt this magnified the more exotic and green fruity touches in the distillate.
It's a lovely expression of Bowmore, one that balances gentle, dry and mineral refill sherry influences, with coastal freshness, crisp peat smoke and classic Bowmore fruit characteristics.
