Stirred from his thousand year sleep by Fionn mac Cumhail, known as Fingal, the sea dragon, Kranna Dubh, swam to the shore at Bowmore to do battle. It ended with Kranna mortally wounded by Fingal's magical sword, Mac a' Luin, his dark blood seeping into the waters.

To this day, the sea-dragon's image appears on the Bowmore label. And it is said, when the sun sets, Loch Indaal turns red with his blood - and that local mothers scold their children severely, if they ever catch them pitching stones into the Loch. Gulp!

The Whisky Exchange says: This 30 year old Bowmore appeared in the mid 1990s and has achieved almost mythic status itself, being made up entirely of long-aged casks from the legendary 1960's vintages. A magnificent dram, bursting with rich tropical flavours - one of the all-time classics from this distillery.

Age: 30 years old

43% ABV / 70cl
