Highlander Inn Bowmore single cask bottling

September 24th, 2009

The Highlander Inn in Craigellachie, Scotland, a place I love to frequent when I’m passing through for a nice cask-conditioned ale or a wee dram, just bottled their single cask for this year. It’s a 26 year old Bowmore from Duncan Taylor.

I know, everyone is bottling their own single cask of whisky these days. But, this one has my tasting notes on the back. Duncan Elphick asked me if I would be willing to taste the whisky and provide tasting notes on the back, and I said yes. It’s a nice Bowmore aged in a bourbon cask.

You can find the details on the whisky, including some images of the bottle, on their website. Here’s a link.

    You’re also quoted on the back of the tasting notes booklet for the Highland Park 30yr old — but you probably know that!

    Actually, I didn’t. 🙂 Thanks for letting me know.

    I have written tasting notes for many whisky companies who have used my notes on their labels, etc., but it was always without attribute. this is the first time I actually the first time with my notes and signature on the label. It was fun to do.
