Over its many years of distillation, Bowmore has produced some outstanding, iconic limited edition bottlings. This particularly stunning example of Bowmore was distilled on the 5th of November 1964. The spirit was carefully filled into exceptional Oloroso sherry casks then laid down to mature deep in the distillery vaults below sea level.Tasting Notes (2)

Producer's Tasting Notes
Almost ebony in colour, with incredible aromas of exotic fruits, ginger and cinnamon. The palate is rewarded with hints of ripe mango, toffee and dark chocolate with the faintest hint of the smokey Bowmore signature. The finish is luxurious, creamy and warm.
Tasting Notes by John Hansell, Malt Advocate
In short, this is one of the most fascinating whiskies I have ever tasted! It’s better than the original Black Bowmore trio.
...What I think impresses me most is how the whisky evolves. On the nose and palate, this is a thick, viscous, whisky, with notes of sticky toffee, earthy oak, fig cake, roasted nuts, fallen fruit, pancake batter, black cherry, ripe peach, dark chocolate covered espresso bean, polished leather, tobacco, a hint of wild game and lingering, leafy damp kiln smoke. Flavors continue on the palate long after swallowing. This is what we all hope for (and dream of) in an older whisky!
I have now tasted this whisky twice: last night before dinner with Iain McCallum, Bowmore’s whisky “nose”, and this morning, in my hotel room before posting this. My opinion is the same. My rating for this whisky, which will be published in the next issue of Malt Advocate magazine, is: 97. (That’s the highest rating I have ever given a whisky.).
