A New World Where East Meets West
Bowmore, the first distillery on Scotland’s isle of Islay, has launched a world first; a Single Malt Scotch Whisky
that has been finished in precious oak casks hand-crafted from the rare Mizunara tree of Japan. Bowmore
Mizunara Cask Finish beautifully brings together two of the world’s most renowned whisky islands to create a
refined, elegant and complex Single Malt, making it the ultimate gift for the whisky connoisseur. This
exclusive expression of just 2,000 bottles is priced from £650.
A WHISKY MADE OF MORE
Having never before left Japan, the carefully selected and delicate Mizunara oak casks embarked on a 6,000 mile journey across two oceans, before being laid to rest in Bowmore’s legendary No.1 vaults located on Scotland’s rugged whisky island. Under the watchful eye of Bowmore’s Distillery Manager and Master Blender the result is a whisky finished to perfection, imparting notes of floral spice with fragrant smoke, carried on a fresh ocean breeze to create a uniquely balanced and refined dram of consequence.
From the instantly captivating and recognisable Mizunara oak flavours of spicy but sweet vanilla on the palate, followed by notes of cedar wood, exotic mango and honey-rose blossom, Bowmore Mizunara Cask Finish is balanced by the complementary notes of Bowmore’s signature smokiness to create a rounded and complex whisky that should be served and savoured neat.
Enjoy this exceptional whisky from a traditional Glencairn crystal tulip glass. Perfect for nosing, the bowl of this iconic glass gives the whisky room to breathe; this opens up the aromas before delivering the dram onto exactly the right part of the tongue, maximising the tasting experience of this unique liquid.

Filled and sealed by hand, the limited edition bottle is presented in a specially designed luxury box with illustrations denoting its Japanese and Scottish heritage.
