Bowmore 38 Years Old 1957

An outstanding Islay malt from the No.1 Vault of Bowmore, described by the distillers as 'Saved from extinction'. Distilled on the 14th of January 1957, the new spirit was filled into 5 casks and left to mature for 38 years when Islay Campbell, Distillery Manager, found the spirit was sitting just above the critical 40% alcohol volume strength for Scotch Whisky. So he moved with haste to have the whisky bottled, if he had waited a moment longer the whisky would have become extinct.
