Footnotes

  • For four decades, this remarkable whisky has lain in the same silent dark vaults and for twenty years the whisky breathed deep through its bourbon hogshead oak cask and matured, becoming rich in colour and warm and subtle in flavour. Then, after transfer to a carefully selected sherry butt, it was once again laid to rest in the same vaults for a further two decades under the care of the men of Bowmore Distillery.

    Seven distillery managers carefully monitored its maturation and followed its progress to its ultimate bottling at cask strength.

    40年來,這款非凡威士忌一直存放在同一個黑暗寂靜的酒庫裏。頭20年,威士忌在波本豬頭橡木桶裏深呼吸與熟成,顏色濃厚,味道溫和而微妙;之後轉到一個精心挑選的雪莉桶後,再次置放在同一酒庫內,並在接下來的20年,得到波摩酒廠技師的悉心照料。

    先後有七位酒廠經理仔細監控酒的熟成,並跟踪它的進展,直至最終以木桶强度裝瓶。
