Bowmore 37 years old Fenghuang Edition
Limited to 888 bottles, the Bowmore 37 Year Old Fenghuang Edition pays homage to mythological creature Fenghuang, a symbol of virtue and grace.
The Fenghuang Edition is made from whisky matured in second-fill Sherry casks for more than 30 years, followed by an additional three years in seasoned first-fill Sherry casks.
Bottled at cask strength 52.1%, the single malt is said to celebrate Bowmore’s rich fruit and smoke house style. On the nose, the whisky has notes of scented wood, tropical fruit, aged leather, toffee apple and warm spice. While the palate offers a balance of dried fruits, roasted coffee beans and dark chocolate merged with nutty and perfume notes, leading to a floral, peppery and oak spiced finish.
The new release follows the first bottling in the Chinese Mythical Guardians Series, the 36-year-old Dragon Edition, which was also limited to 888 bottles and unveiled in August 2019. It was the first in a series of four planned releases and was sold out in record time, Bowmore said.
