Bowmore has released a 19 year old French Oak Barrique matured limited edition single malt exclusively available from Amazon. I suspect this will not be available for very long so if you want to get hold of a bottle which is currently priced at £129 don't hang around you will find it here Amazon
I'm a fan of wine cask matured whisky, being a fan of wine. Chateau Lagrange ain't the best in class, but hey, it does belong to Suntory, so it stays all in the family.
That said, I immediately raise my eyebrows the moment I am not told whether it's a white or red wine barrique, and which grape variety / type of wine. CL mostly produces red wine, but they do white, too. It's quite depressing how many whisky producers use wine casks but don't really tell anything about the type of wine, as if all wine was the same.
Not only it doesn't help the customer nor its education, but it also speaks of the fact the casks might not exactly be worth shouting out about.
In doubt I bought 2. If this ends up being bad, I can always sell it at twice the price, so hey.
Just spotted this post, I wonder if this will be a limited release from Bowmore which picks up good reviews then becomes very sought after. I am debating with myself whether to go for one or two bottles.
It is not too badly priced in todays market even as a drinker and previous limited release Bowmore whiskys do have a history of reselling for quite a bit more than the original asking price, tempting.
Very true Lennox, and with this being an Amazon UK exclusive overseas buyers wont be able to get hold of it from Amazon and typically Bowmore has a lot of fans who will want to get hold of this. I can see quite a few bottles heading to the online auction sites. Mine will be for drinking though, unless it starts changing hands for mad money then it will buy me a few bottles of something else.
