Bowmore 1971 Sestante 14 Year Old Cask Strength

A very interesting 1971 vintage bottling of Bowmore from Sestante. This is one of two of these 14 year olds released, the other at 43% ABV.

The Sestante import company was founded in the 1970s by Ernesto Mainardi, and he bottled his first single casks under the name in 1985. Alongside his contemporary, Silvano Samaroli, Mainardi pioneered giving his customers a choice of both standard 40-46% bottlings, and cask strength releases from the same casks. Along with his other brand, Silver Seal, Mainardi's bottlings are incredibly sought after.

Bottled in 1985, this and its lower strength counterpart, along with a similar pair of 1965 vintage 20 year olds from the same distillery, were Mainardi's first ever Sestante bottlings.
