The second of the three extraordinary Oloroso cask 1964 Bowmores released in the mid-1990s. Like the first batch, this release was of 2000 bottles, and originally retailed on the high street for around £80(!). A much higher proportion of casks filled in the 1960s were sherry, and Black Bowmore is proof of the quality of some of those casks. With an almost unfathomable concentration and intensity of flavour, and perfect balance of fruit, peat and power, this whisky deserves the frequently overused 'legendary' tag and has assumed almost mythic status amongst whisky collectors and aficionados.

My mum bought me a bottle for my 30th birthday as I was born in '64. Think she paid about 90 pounds for it. Drank and enjoyed all my other rare whiskys, but managed to keep this one,,,,ed

If I could afford a bottle of Black Bowmore 1964 I would buy a couple. But those who say that It can't beat The Famous Grouse probably have some kind of disease in their mouths or tongue. And thats a fact.
