Footnotes

  • The TALE of the HALF-CENTURY-Old BLACK BOWMORE THE LAST CASK' is as BEGUILING as it is COMPLEX

    On 5TH NOVEMBER 1964, SEVEN FIRST-FILL OLOROSO SHERRY hogshead casks (3708, 3710, 3713, 3714, 3715, 3716, 3717) were filled to MATURE METICULOUSLY in our No.1 VAULTS.

    EVERY CASK and LIQUID has a SPECIAL AGEING RELATIONSHIP, and, in OCTOBER 2002, we DISCOVERED that CASKS 3708 and 3714 were QUICKLY LOSING their LIQUID to the ANGEL'S SHARE. As such, on 23RD OCTOBER 2002, these CASKS were COMBINED into u SINGLE CASK to PRESERVE this PRECIOUS LIQUID.

    In 2007, we released 827 BOTTLES of BLACK BOWMORE 42 YEAR OLD from CASKS 3710, 3713, 3715, 3716 and 3717, fortuitously OVERLOOKING the PREVIOUSLY MARRIED CASK, which was LEFT UNDISTURBED in the COOLEST, DARKEST CORNER of the No.1 VAULTS to CONTINUE its MAGICAL AGEING PROCESS.

    There the STORY ENDED, or SO WE THOUGHT, until we REDISCOVERED this LAST BLACK BOWMORE CASK when TRAWLING THROUGH the STOCK LEDGERS in 2014. BLACK BOWMORE takes its NAME from the ABSORBING BLACK PEARL INTENSITY of COLOUR IMPARTED by TWO FIRST-FILL OLOROSO SHERRY hogsheads, just one CONSEQUENCE of the MYSTERIOUS ALCHEMY at PLAY within the TIME-HONOURED No.1 VAULTS.

    After 50 YEARS, THE LAST CASK' has DEVELOPED a SUBLIME ELEGANCE, the UNIQUE ENVIRONMENT revealing an ABSORBING ELIXIR of TROPICAL FRUIT and HONEYED BLACK TRUFFLE It is COMPLEXITY at its MOST COMPLEX, a SILKY FINESSE and VELVETY OPULENCE defining the whisky's HALF-CENTURY HISTORY.

    THE OLDEST and VERY LAST in the series, ONLY 159 BOTTLES of the BLACK BOWMORE 50 YEAR OLD THE LAST CASK' exit. EACH CONTOUR in this HANDCRAFTED CABINET marks the PASSAGE of TIME since the CELEBRATED FIRST DISTILLATION of this HISTORIC SINGLE MALT. The NEXT CHAPTER in the STORY IS YOURS.

    黑波摩—1964—50年—最後一桶
    有半個世紀歷史的黑波摩最後一桶,故事既迷人又複雜。

    1964年11月5日,在我們的一號酒庫,七個歐羅素雪莉豬頭桶(編號3708、3710、3713、3714、3715、3716、3717)首次灌裝後一絲不苟地熟成。

    每個酒桶跟其中酒液,有特殊的陳年關係,2002年10月,我們發現3708號和3714號桶的酒因「天使分享」,流失得很快。因此,在2002年10月23日,這兩桶酒裝進一個大桶裡,以保存珍貴的酒液。

    2007年,我們從3710號、3713號、3715號、3716號和3717號木桶裡,裝了827瓶42年黑波摩。那二合為一的酒桶意外地沒有裝瓶,原封不動在一號酒庫最凉爽、最黑暗的角落,繼續其神奇熟成之旅。

    我們以為故事到此為止,直到在2014年翻閱存貨總賬時,重新發現這黑波摩最後一桶。黑波摩之名,源自兩個首次填充的歐羅素雪莉豬頭桶所賦予的迷人黑珍珠色,是悠久一號酒庫的神秘力量之一。

    經過50年,「最後一桶」展現壯麗的優雅,獨特環境流露迷人的熱帶水果與蜜味黑松露。其最複雜的複雜度、絲柔的靈巧味和順滑的富饒感,定義了該威士忌半世紀的歷史。

    這系列最古老也是最後一桶酒,黑波摩50年最後一桶只有159瓶,每支置於手工精製酒盒內,標誌着這單一麥芽威士忌自第一次蒸餾以來的悠長時光之旅。您,將是故事新一章的主角。
