Second wave: Bowmore 19 Year Old was originally intended to be a one-off limited edition

The Islay single malt, which is fully matured in first-fill ex-Chateau Lagrange French oak barriques, was launched in October 2018 as an Amazon exclusive.

A ‘small number of casks’, which were matured in Bowmore’s No.1 Vaults, have now been bottled for a second release.

The second edition will be available from Amazon.com at the same price – £129 for a 70cl bottle.

David Turner, Bowmore distillery manager, said: ‘We are delighted to be able to bring back a small amount of this unique expression following its initial release last year.

‘We knew we had something special when we bottled it so to have that re-affirmed is great to see.’

The whisky is bottled at 48.9% abv, and is said to have aromas of candied apple, honey and light peat smoke, with notes of toffee, wild honey and spice on the palate.

The first edition saw 4,500 bottles sold across the UK, Europe and Japan.

Bowmore has not confirmed how many bottles will be made available for the second edition.
