Bowmore Hand Filled Editions

Bowmore_hand_batch_all

I recently became quite fascinated with distillery hand filled bottlings and in particular those from Bowmore. I was not able to find a single source which contained information about all the editions/batches/iterations of the Bowmore hand filled bottlings so I decided to make one myself.

This list/archive does not contain tasting notes as I have not yet tried any of them (hoping to!) but I have added links to tastings notes from other sites.

The best sources of information seemed to come from whisky auction sites so I have added links to auction pages for info sourcing. Apparently online whisky auctions serve as a sort of whisky information archive!

If you have anymore information on the bottlings please let me know and I can add it to this post.
