Bowmore 18 Year Old Aston Martin Edition #3

Islay's oldest working distillery, Bowmore was established in 1779 and is now regarded as one of the most popular malts not only on Islay, but in the whole of Scotland. The distillery was acquired by Stanley P. Morrison in 1963, ushering in an era of iconic single malts, including the legendary Black Bowmore, credited by many as the genesis of whisky collecting, bottled in 1995. The distillery was bought under the control Suntory the year prior (they had been stakeholders since 1989), and it remains one of the most collectible brands in Scotch whisky today. Bowmore is one of the few remaining Scottish distilleries to use its own floor maltings, providing them with 40% of their requirements.

Part of the Aston Martin Series, this exceptional eighteen-year-old Bowmore is the third edition, labelled as Deep & Complex. Aged in a combination of Oloroso and Pedro Ximénez sherry casks, it’s a feat of engineering, much like the car from which it draws inspiration.
Each edition of the Aston Martin Series features a different car. This 18 year old expression features the 1957 DB Mk III.
