- ABV 43%
A 1965 vintage Bowmore, probably bottled in the 1980s and with an old style label. This was distilled in the golden years shortly after the Morrison's takeover (who famously oversaw the modernisation of the distillery in 1960s, increasing its capacity and implementing savvy marketing). Matured in sherry casks. Box and bottle in very good condition with some minor scuffing to the rear glass and label.
NB - We have 1 only to sell.
Other reviews... Bowmore is an obvious blue chip and the malts that were distilled in the 1950’s, 1960’s and early 1970’s are all quite superb (ah, the mango!) but a possible change of distillation regime around the end of the 1970’s or early 1980’s until the early 1990’s (it seems) has changed the malt’s profile quite a lot, putting off quite some whisky lovers because of ‘new’ perfumy smells and flavours (lavender, geranium, heady violets) and a loss of phenolic/peaty components... A lighter version of the 'full proof' 1965 that we found in a Milanese pizzeria with Johannes a few years ago. Colour: full gold. Nose: maybe a little more spirity (although it’s not spirity – well, you see what I mean). A little more caramel, hints of tapioca, polenta… The sherry is more on red fruits (strawberries, blackberries), peonies, blackcurrants… Probably more classic. Very nice pepper, a little dill, parsley, crystallised oranges, hints of smoked ham, spearmint… Less complex than the Bicentenary on the nose but still very beautiful. Mouth: bolder, more powerful than the Bicentenary at the attack, fruitier, more honeyed. It’s almost thick! Goes on with plums (both green, yellow and red), smoke, spices of all kinds (lots of nutmeg and cinnamon). Finish: amazing, preciously woody and spicy, candied, jammy… Absolutely wonderful. 94 points - www.whiskyfun.com
