This Scotch whisky is 40% proof and was bottled in 1999.
This version of the Bowmore Legend Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky was bottled in the year 1999 and tells the story of the Legend of the Princess Giant. Since this 6th release appeared at the turn of the millennium 1999/2000 and contains the additional print on the tin, it is also called Millenium Edition. This limited edition of the Bowmore Legend was presented by Bowmore in the years 1994 to 2006 in a total of 13 issues with yearly changing motifs in relief print in a metal-tin on the market. On the elaborately designed and embossed metal tins, a legend of Islay Island was presented in English. The limited bottlings were available for the international and a version for the Italian market, which partly had a slightly deviant design and bottles with age indication (8Years) of the Bowmore Legend.
Today almost all versions from this limited edition with the decorative tin are rarely found and the most popular bottlings among collectors. Note slight dents to tin.
The Story of the Legend of the Princess Giant:
The King of Giants was gravely warning his daughter, Iula. undquot;You must never go over the sea, it is dangerous, even for a giant.undquot; Iula nodded in agreement and went to bed. But the beautiful giantess did not sleep and as the full moon rose, her spirit of adventure lifted too. She crept down to the beach, where she gathered large rocks to use as stepping stones. Then Iula gently placed them, one by one, in front of her into the sea. She went on, all through the night until, exhausted, she reached the shores of a dark island. But, in the soft sands of the shore, her footsteps sank and the sea washed over her, claiming her for its own. The island she discovered took her name and, to this day, Islay is named in her honour.
