WHAT Bowmore Mizunara Cask Finish
WHY With only 2000 bottles available globally, this limited edition from Bowmore is the first-ever Islay single malt scotch whisky to be finished in the revered, hand-crafted Japanese Mizunara oak casks. In a rare move, Japanese distillers allowed their precious Mizunara casks to travel from Japan to Islay to rest in Bowmore’s No.1 Vaults, resulting in a dram that captures flavours of the East and West. We like how it combines the peatiness and spice of Bowmore’s single malt with the notes of sweet vanilla, cedar wood, mango and honey rose blossom.
Available at The Beam Cellar for $1500.
