    An incredible expression of Bowmore, but at this price you could get some other gems on the top 10 of this site that are even better (in my own subjective opinion).

    That being said, this has everything you'd want from a 1964 Bowmore. Tropical, coastal, earthy, toffee, and "old-school". Delicious, but there is definitely better out there at this price point.

    Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

    The nose is incredibly subtle with rose water and freshly-squeezed
    peach juice notes, then comes smouldering barley fields and a scattering
    of sea salt.
    Palate: Ripe peaches and fresh cut orange segments.
    Finish: The finish is sweet with coconut milk and peat fire embers glowing for some time to come.
    The age of this Bowmore is elegantly displayed, the flavours are soft
    and refined, lingering but not flabby. A wonderful showing from Bowmore.

    1964 is THE famous year of Bowmore (Bicentenary, Black series, Gold, White and other) which manifested the huge reputation of this distillery.

    This bottling is the most recent one from this glorious year, bottled in 2012:

    on the nose, discover ripe peach water, floral rose water and just a wisp of smoking barley. A sip reveals lusciously ripe peaches, but balanced by a more acidic note - something akin to juicy blood oranges or sharp pink grapefruit. Next comes wood with coconut creams and sweetness, leading to a finish of gentle peat fires glowing in the dusk.


    Very desireable, just a `tad` too expensive though.
