    Wow, extremely complex and rich, even so the bottle had just been freshly opened (no surprise the cork didn't survive) and there was only short air time, great mature sherry wood - brilliant!

      Intense, nutty, dried fruits galore, dates, plums, prunes, figs, little raisins, acacia honey, toffee, molasses, menthol, eucalyptus, allkinds of camphor, little coffee liqueur, little meaty with ham and bacon, beefstock, tobacco, whiffs of smoke, sherry wood, hints of (good) leather - superb!

    This is the final cask from Bowmore’s legendary year of 1964…a Fino sherry cask left to mature for 46 years on Islay. As with the other 1964 Bowmores that make up the Bowmore Trilogy, this whisky is amazingly vibrant with a nose of peach pie, mango, nectarine, orange, and other tropical fruits, along with cream, nougat, raisins, and a slight touch of red apples. The taste is vibrant and fruity with peaches, pears, tangerines, orange peel, and a hint of ginger. The finish is very long, dry, and fruity, slightly tart and tropical, with just a hint of brine. Absolutely amazing!

    A bottling of a single cask, part of the same batch of Oloroso casks that produced Black Bowmore. This was released as part of the legendary 1964 Bowmore Trilogy series along with the Fino and Bourbon expressions.
