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!

Whatever the marketing people were drinking when they let their imaginations run riot, this is a truly magnificent 30 year old in a magnificent presentation box.
