Bowmore 15 Year Old Sestante for Il Carato
A very rare Bowmore bottled by famous Italian bottlers, Sestante, for Ristorante il Carato, an enoteca in the town of Brescia. Sestante bottled several whiskies for Il Carato, including the Van Gogh and Flowers series.
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.
