Product details

A beautifully presented 50 Year Old Vault Series Bowmore that is bottled in 2021 and released the following year exclusively for travel retail. Distilled in 1969, this rare Islay single malt is aged in a combination of ex-bourbon and sherry casks, creating a multi-layered character.

Tasting notes

The nose is floral with subtle notes of citrus fruits and vanilla cream, followed by lemon meringue, fudge and grilled almonds that fill the palate along with the undeniable, famous Islay smoke.


Bowmore is the first licensed Islay distillery. It has stood on the shores of Lochindaal, a sea loch opening out into the wild Atlantic Ocean, since 1779. To this day, the distillery still operates in traditional ways, honouring the origin whisky-making techniques. Bowmore is still hand crafted today. Time is invested at every stage. And this care and attention to detail create the unique and timeless house style of Bowmore. Unparalleled single malts that remain unimitated and age like no other on Islay. Bowmore has drawn inspiration from its stunning surroundings. Islay is home to some of the oldest strata in the world. These rocks have been shaped by the wild elements of Islay over a long period of time. Transformed by seasons, enriched by the wild elements. These formations surround our distillery and they are linked to the origins of our name itself. Some historians believe the name Bowmore to be derived from a small black reef just outside Lochindaal whilst others reference the Norse for sunken rock, bogha mor, as its origination. Whichever may be true, there is a strong link back to the home and heritage which ‘Art of Time’ both qualifies and celebrates.
