Bowmore 1964 / 35 Year Old / Sherry Cask

    70cl / 42.1%  -  Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky
   

A bottling of a single cask, part of the same batch of Oloroso casks that produced Black Bowmore. This particular cask yielded just 99 bottles, of which only 95 went on sale. This was originally earmarked by Bowmore as the very best of these famous casks and tasting it, you can see why - all the flavours are super-concentrated.

Tasting Notes

Producer's Tasting Notes

Intensely Islay in warmth, yet as gentle and mellow as the men who made it.  Peat plays second fiddle to the plummy fruits with very gentle marine notes and a lick of liquorice to balance the sweetness.

 

It takes both an exceptional spirit and an exceptional cask to live in harmony for over three and a half decades.

 
Bowmore Distillery
 
Breathing in the fresh Atlantic sea air while maturing at a pace that enables time and the natural environment to weave its magic, instilling a personality that is truly distinctive.

This famous bottling, the rarest and most expensive of the legendary 1964 Bowmores, was originally bottled for Oddbins in 2000. Of the 99 bottles yielded from the cask, four were kept at the Bowmore distillery museum - the remaining 95 sold out within days.

Quite how many pallets of Bowmore 12 year old Oddbins had to promise to buy in order to secure this cask we will never know - but it must have been a lot.
