Morrison Bowmore has lined up a limited edition expression of its Bowmore single malt Scotch.

The company, which is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Japanese drinks group Suntory, said today (2 December) that the 'Maltmen's Selection' - a 13 year-old single malt - will be the first in a series of annual releases going forward.

The brand addition has been created from five sherry casks, which were chosen and filled by four maltmen at Bowmore in 1995.

A total of 3,000 bottles of the Scotch, which has an abv of 54.6%, will be available exclusively from the distillery visitor centre and from www.bowmore.co.uk for GBP120 (US$180) per bottle.
