Bowmore 1961 / 50 Year Old
Product Description

An exceptional release from Bowmore – distilled in December 1961, this whisky was aged for 50 years in a pair of ex-bourbon hogsheads. The bottle is hand-blown by Glasstorm, the burr elm display cabinet handcrafted by Peter Toaig and the silver neck stopper and collar fashioned by Thomas Fattorini. An incredible Islay malt.

Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting notes by Billy A

    • Nose

      Fresh hay, flowering meadows, white peach, grapefruit, star fruit, toffee apples, spiced pear, stewed gooseberry and delicate syrup sweetness underneath. Sweet stollen, garibaldi bicuits, touches of woody resin and fresh wax polish develop, with toffee and caramel peeking in at the sides.

    • Palate

      Sweet up front with Refresher chews, sweet rhubarb, pink grapefruit, pineapple kubes balanced by touches of damp wood, bark and autumn leaves. Fruity jelly and mixed tropical fruit juice slowly develop on the palate, along with hints of barrel char, woody spice, savoury tarragon and spiced cake batter.

    • Finish

      Apple skin and grainy apple, river stones, moss, lingering shortbread and freshly sliced pineapple.

  • Producer's Tasting Notes

    • On the eye

      Warm honey gold.

    • Breathe in

      Sweet almond frangipane in coconut milk, the fruitiness of apricots and crystallised orange, together with hints of black truffles and tea tree oil.

    • Sip

      Bursts of ripe fruit – figs, fleshy papaya, pomegranate and pineapple – intermingled with black truffles and gentle smoke.

    • Savour

      The evolving finish of almond cake and caramelised pears interwoven with subtle peat oils.
