Bowmore Islay Single Malt Vintage Edition 1988 Bottled 2017 (1x70cl)
Inc. VAT: £611.54
1988

Bowmore Islay Single Malt Vintage Edition 1988 Bottled 2017 (1x70cl) An extremely rare vintage release from the iconic Bowmore distillery, this vintage Islay is remarkable in its rarity, its exclusivity and its quality. This discontinued beauty is a unique expression of Bowmore's house style. Known for a more moderate peat profile, especially when compared to the likes of Ardbeg, Lagavulin and Laphroaig, often tempered by a fair amount of sherry influence, however this Bowmore is matured solely in Bourbon barrels allowing its peat character to come through with a more classical Islay smokiness, alongside some surprising floral notes of rosewater, orange blossom and a satisfying maritime profile. Global Traveller Exclusive, bottled at 47.8%

Caol Ila (Gordon & Macphail) Islay Single Malt Connoisseurs Choice Cask Strength Refill Sherry Butt Cask 225 31YO Bottled 2020 1988 (1x70cl)

Well-aged Caol Ila is one of the greatest pleasures for a whisky drinker and collector, with very few bottles reaching and exceeding the 30-year marker. This offering from legendary bottlers Gordon & MacPhail is a bona fide treasure for lovers of this most thrilling Islay single malt. Distilled in 1988 and matured for 31 years in a refill sherry butt, this is showing a delicately balanced profile combining the classic peat and maritime-infused spirit with the fine fruit flavours and svelte texture courtesy of the cask type. Just 422 bottles were drawn at natural cask strength of 51.4%.


Colour: Burnished brass.

Aroma: Classically Caol Ila nose of wild flowers, sea breeze and burnt citrus peel with a slight dried fruit richness complimenting the peat.

Taste: Much sweeter on the palate with stewed fruit and prunes alongside smokey peat ad black olive. A bit Côte-Rôtie like?

Finish: There is a satisfying persimmon and black pepper drying complexity on the peat-infused finish. A true-blue Islay-lovers malt par excellence.
