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 (2)
Tasting notes by Billy A
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.
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.
Apple skin and grainy apple, river stones, moss, lingering shortbread and freshly sliced pineapple.
Producer's Tasting Notes
On the eye
Warm honey gold.
Sweet almond frangipane in coconut milk, the fruitiness of apricots and crystallised orange, together with hints of black truffles and tea tree oil.
Bursts of ripe fruit – figs, fleshy papaya, pomegranate and pineapple – intermingled with black truffles and gentle smoke.
The evolving finish of almond cake and caramelised pears interwoven with subtle peat oils.
