    Bowmore 'Bicentenary cask strength' 1964/1979 98.8 proof, 56.2%, OB for Fecchio & Frassa, Italy, cubic bottle . Allez, young Bowmore, how original.
    Mmm, original or not, who cares? On the nose I think nuts and dried fruit (raisins, figs), but it is only with a few drops of water to add that it opens, I get fresh fruit such as mandarin, peach and pineapple, but also wet hay (light 'farmy') and herbs (mint, dill, chamomile). Light peat smoke too, as an extra. Strong mouthfeel that starts on figs and a shipload of orange. Then mint, ginger and cinnamon. Light oak. And here too a little peat. Medium finish on spices and orange. After the previous, a slight disappointment. But that is relatively relative here. 91/100 http://onversneden.com/2011/12/30/en-dan-was-er-nog-die-kersttasting/

  2. QuarterCentury did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    A very rare version of the famed 1964 vintage bicentenary whisky from Bowmore. Bottled in a rather unusual square bottle at cask strength in 1979 as part of the 200th Anniversary birthday celebrations. This special edition was produced for the Italian market only.
