Gold Bowmore

Tasting Notes This 45-year-old single malt develops in the glass like a fine vintage port, revealing floral notes and profound flavors of exotic fruit, creamy vanilla, and walnut. Worth Knowing The fall of 2009 marked the Bowmore distillery’s third and final release of its famed November 5, 1964, distillation—which also gave us Black Bowmore and White Bowmore. The Gold iteration comes from four barrels—three bourbon casks and one oloroso-sherry cask—all of which were combined to produce just 701 bottles. ($7,200). Note Prices are average retail and do not reflect local or state taxes.
