This is a marriage of the East and the West. Legendary Mizunara Oak Casks which have been unique to Japanese Whisky, travelled 6000 miles from Japan to Islay and sat in Bowmore's equally legendary No.1 Vaults to finish this remarkable creation. Mizunara Oak maturation usually imparts unique flavours of sandalwood and coconut. Bowmore Official Tasting Notes (Website) for this bottling.
