Bowmore 1965 Sestante 20 Year Old

A very interesting 1965 vintage bottling of Bowmore from Sestante. This is one of two of these 20 year olds released, the other at cask strength.

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 cask strength counterpart, along with a similar pair of 1971 vintage 14 year olds from the same distillery, were Mainardi's first ever Sestante bottlings.
