‘White’ Bowmore Limited Edition Release, $4,000

Limited Edition Foods has the news:

Bowmore has released its second of three Limited Edition Scotches. It is called White Bowmore and it is a 43 year old single malt. For this Limited Edition release there are only 723 bottles priced at GBP2,500 (US$4,000) per bottle. White Bowmore has been maturing in bourbon casks since 1964. There is supposedly going to be a competition on the Bowmore website for a chance to win a bottle of this luxury spirit.

The first of this series of Limited Edition Scotches was released last year. It was called Black Bowmore and was a 42 year old malt. Black Bowmore was named to the top 5 list of most wanted spirits, which I assume to mean that its rarity combined with the time it takes to end up with the malt makes it desirable even if it is not all that great tasting, although it may be good, too.
