A very special whisky, Bottle 55 of 790

Not that old, but pretty special. This is a single cask release from Blackadder for the Fukuoka bartenders association. It's a 59% Bowmore 13 year old.

This is not for beginners, but is a beautiful explosion of sweet peatiness that will bring a smile, and perhaps even a tear, to any fan of Islay. it's bottle 55 of 70, so you'll never get chance to try this again...


I got a very reasonable price for it, thanks to Senda-san at Bar Senda in Fukuoka (if you're ever in Fukuoka, visit Bar Senda, his lack of English is more than made up for by having 27 different Ardbegs, Macallan from 1947, and hundreds of other bottles), so I'll be selling it for only 170 RMB a dram. Not too far away, price-wise from a G&T on the Bund....
