Black Bowmore 42-Year-Old Scotch Whisky
The Black Bowmore is one of the most expensive whiskies around. The scotch comes from Bowmore, one of Scotland's oldest distilleries on the island of Islay. The spirit was poured into oak casks that had been used for aging Oloroso sherry. This dark whisky has scents of cocoa, toffee, sherry and mature oak with a rich flavor with hints of coffee and orange.
Back in February, RIck Lyke who writes the great spirits blog Lyke to Drink tasted the 42-year-old Black Bowmore which was distilled on Nov. 5, 1964, The five casks used in this bottling yielded 827 bottles of which 80 were shipped to the U.S. earlier this year. The bottle comes in a mahogany box inlaid with maple burl and copper and sells for $4500.
