Bowmore Bicentenary75cl / 43%
- Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky
- Distillery Bottling
A legendary bottling of Bowmore bottled in 1979 to celebrate the distillery's bicentenary. Vatted from some phenomenal 1960s sherry casks, this is renowned by aficionados as one of the best Bowmore's ever - at a fraction of the pricetags commanded by the likes of Black Bowmore.

Once you've opened the bottle be sure to drink it all within a few weeks, at most, or the delicate top notes which make this malt so special will likely have evaporated. I speak from experience.
I do have a couple of these bottles. A gift from the Bowmore Distillery many years ago. The problem with this bottles is that the cork does not seal properly and the whisky evaporates with time. My bottles are now about half filled after 34 years. I also keep two full cases of the 1957 Moon Import
a phenomenal whisky indeed...simply stunnig,
Glad to hear I have something worth keeping. I used to be a Pub owner here in Malta and a good friend of mine gave me one of these a long time ago and said save this for a very very special occasion. Looks like he was right :) . Anyway its still boxed and the bottle is still sealed, I think its going to stay that way for a while. Or maybe its an Ebay item ?
swine!! what a find!
Believe it or not, I bought this bottle at a flea market here in Japan for $10 ! Someone had received it as a gift 25 years ago and just wanted to get rid of it. I kid you not ! It tastes fantastic, with deep color and flavor. You can taste the history. Lucky me !
