Bowmore 2001 12 Year (The Exclusive Malts)
The Exclusive Malts // Islay, Scotland
Creative Whisky Company's "Exclusive Malts" is a collection of single cask expressions bottled at cask strength. David Stirk, founder of the company and a former writer for "Whisky Magazine," personally selects each cask to age and bottle for retail. He selected a cask of single malt that was distilled at Islay's Bowmore in September 2001. After maturing in ex-sherry oak casks for 12 years, it was bottled in January 2014 at cask strength. Only 589 bottles were released.
