Bowmore launches 27 Years Old Port Cask

Beam Suntory has released a new Bowmore Scotch whisky expression – 27 Years Old Port Cask, the third and final expression in its Single Malt Scotch Whisky Vintner's Trilogy.

The 27 Year Old Port Cask joins Bowmore 18 Years Old Double Matured Manzanilla and Bowmore 26 Years Old Wine Matured, both released in November 2017. The now-complete Trilogy was created and matured in the distillery’s No.1 Vaults, one of the world’s oldest Scotch maturation houses.

The whiskies within the Trilogy have been aged in manzanilla sherry, port, wine and Bourbon barrels. 

Kale Schnettler, director of Super Premium Whisky, Beam Suntory says: “We are thrilled to release Bowmore 27 Year Old Port Cask to complete the Bowmore Vintner’s Trilogy. Steeped in nearly 240 years of heritage, coupled with our No. 1 Vaults ageing warehouse has made this brand one of the world’s most coveted Scotch whiskies. This Vintner’s Trilogy exemplifies the expertise of our distiller and blender to produce three distinctly different, wine-matured whiskies meant to be sipped, savoured and certainly collected.”

Bottled at 48.3% ABV, it is available from specialist whisky retailers, priced at £410 a bottle.
