A. Smith Bowan has launched the final release in its Abraham Bowman series for 2014.

Abraham Bowman 'Vanilla Bean Infused Whiskey', with an abv of 45%, has been aged for seven-and-a-half years. Barrels of A. Smith Bowman Bourbon were infused with chopped-up Madagascar vanilla beans in October, 2012. 

The Virginia-based company said the release is "very limited", but a spokesperson declined to offer more detail.

The flavoured whiskey sub-category is booming in the US at the moment: In half-year figures released yesterday, Brown-Forman boasted of a 32% leap in volume sales for the Tennessee Honey extension of its Jack Daniel's brand.
