    Very fruity, almost a fruit bomb but not too sweet, a typical old Bowmore with the tropical fruits and austere notes, despite the bottle had been freshly opened and there was not much air time - amazing!

    Comparing all the Bowmores 1964 from the Trilogy series I have to admit that I liked the Bourbon cask the most because of its fabulous fruitiness - of course the Oloroso and Fino cask were great too.

      Intense fruity, tropical fruits, fresh pineapple, ripe thai mango, passion fruit, honeycomb, white pepper, apricot, nectar, orange zest, jam, ripe cantaloup, hints of vanilla, whiffs of oak wood, spices, cloves, little floral, whiffs of smoke and some austere notes - delicious!
