The year 1989 was a helluva time. Tim Berners-Lee invented the world wide web, the Berlin Wall came down and Bowmore set aside some prized single malt for the scotch connoisseurs of the future. At last, said spirit is finally ready for sipping.
The 30-year-old in question was matured for three decades in the finest sherry hogsheads and bourbon barrels within the storied Bowmore No. 1 Vault (one of the world’s oldest maturation warehouses). Like the internet, the expression has evolved over time yet is colored by its history.
Selected from just two casks each year, Bowmore says the coveted drop has the past 30 years at the very core of its character. With a burnished gold natural color, the whisky is bottled at a cask strength of 45.3 percent and features what the distillery describes as a “rich fruity and subtly smoky style.”
