The Black Bowmore 1964 is a single malt whisky that is every bit as coveted as the legendary Aston Martin DB5 that this special bottle pays homage to. Shaped like a piston from the engine of the roaring British sports car, each bottle of the Aston Martin x Bowmore Black Bowmore DB5 1964 holds a spirit that was matured for 31 years before being bottled. The deep shade of obsidian of the whisky aptly illustrates the depth of its flavor. Notes from the smokiness of tobacco to the aromatic flavors of mango, passion fruit, and acacia honey dance across the palate with each sip. As those complex flavors wane, they leave the lingering tastes of spices and tropical fruits in their wake.
The inaugural collaboration between Bowmore and Aston Martin will be limited to a release of just 25 bottles. The early 1960s was a seminal period for both companies. 1963 marked the release of the iconic Aston Martin DB5 and 1964 is the year that Black Bowmore was first distilled. The 49.6% ABV Aston Martin x Bowmore Black Bowmore DB5 1964 celebrates how that era helped define the reputation of Bowmore and Aston Martin as experts of their respective crafts.
