Winning bid: £60.00
Lot number: 067-1897

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 new 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

Please examine the images of the bottle, any packaging and labels carefully and satisfy yourself as to their condition before making a bid.
