The new Vintner’s Trilogy includes Bowmore 27 Year Old, Bowmore 26-Year-Old Wine Matured, and Bowmore 18-Year-Old Double Matured Manzanilla.

All of the products in the series have been aged in Bowmore’s No. 1 Vault, which is claimed to be the oldest Scotch whisky maturation warehouse in the world, reported Thespiritsbusiness.com.

With 25.5% alcohol by volume (ABV), Bowmore 18-Year-Old Double Matured Manzanilla is claimed to have been aged for 13 years in ex-Bourbon barrels, alongside an additional five years in ex-manzanilla Sherry barrels. This variant is retailed for $127.

"All of the products in the series have been aged in Bowmore’s No. 1 Vault."

Matured for more than 13 years in bourbon barrels and wine barrique barrels, Bowmore 26-Year-Old Wine Matured contains an ABV of 48.7% and retails for $540.

Bowmore 27 Year Old will be released in the US market next year, reported Just-drinks.com.

Beam Suntory international marketing manager for malts at brand owner Judith Giegerich was quoted by the Thespiritsbusiness.com as saying: “The No. 1 Vault is a treasure trove and we’re proud to be able to release an age-statement series, which is premium and collectable.

“Each whisky is unique but they come together to showcase the importance and versatility of our maturation process and cement Bowmore’s position as one of the world’s leading and quality whiskies.”
