Bowmore 50 year old 1966 vintage, 41.5%

Price: $30,000 Issue: Summer 2018 Reviewer: Gavin Smith

The third and most exclusive release in Bowmore's Vault Legends Collection was matured for 50 years in bourbon hogshead #5675. The nose is fragrant and musky, slightly oily, with orange peel, developing vanilla, and green citrus notes. Intense orange and peach on the palate, with black pepper, aniseed, and sweet oak. Very persistent tangy citrus fruits through the extremely long finish. No negative tannic notes. (74 bottles)
