Bowmore White Sands 17 Year Old
Lot number: 066-1880
Winning bid: £65
The oldest distillery on Islay, Bowmore has been described as the Grande Dame of the island. It still has its own floor maltings which make up about 30% of its requirements. Its No. 1 vaults are the oldest maturation warehouse in Scotland and the only one below sea level.
Part of Bowmore's premium Travel Retail offerings, this White Sands is the pièce de résistance in the range.
Not only is it Bowmore's Master Distiller Eddie MacAffer's personal favourite, it has also been inspired by the stunning beaches of The Big Strand and Laggan Bay, a stretch a coast just south of the Bowmore distillery.
The whisky has been matured for 17 years in Bowmore's legendary No.1 Vaults, the oldest maturation warehouse in Scotland. Savour notes of rich treacle toffee and ripe exotic fruits bound together by warm peat smoke.
Age: 17 years old
43% ABV / 70cl
