Bowmore 27 Year Port Cask is the final bottling in the Vintner's Trilogy following the 18 Year Double Matured Manzanilla and 26 Year French Oak Barrique releases which were both released in late 2017. Port Cask was matured entirely in Bowmore's famous No. 1 Vaults Warehouse on Islay with the first 13 years spent in ex-bourbon barrels. The whisky was then transferred to port pipes for the final 14 years of maturation. It is bottled at 48.3% ABV and expected to be released in fall 2018.

Tasting Notes

"A nose of chimney smoke, chocolate cookie crumbs, soot, and dark malt. Adding water will draw out dried chiles. The palate is sweet but not rambunctious. Lots of “before bedtime” sweets to enjoy like dark chocolate, treacle candy, and malt balls. The finish offers a lick of peat, subtle smoke, and sweet wood flavors."
