Tasted not long ago at a friends place. It completely knocked me over, the intens fruity aroma`s with a nice portion of smoke and the chocolatey dried fruit candied flavor with a touch of oak made it complete. The finish was to die for, long, warm, fruity/oaky spices. GREAT!! I felt priviledged.

The spirit that flows through its stills is one of the most lightly
peated of the Islay whiskies. Despite using malt with a phenol content
of over 20 parts per million, the spirit can stand up well to fairly
lengthy maturation in rich sherry casks and the highly sought after
Black Bowmore is the perfect example of this.

Remember it\'s maturity that makes whisky great! That\'s why I Love The Glenrothes! Signature Picture

The second of the three extraordinary Oloroso cask 1964 Bowmores released in the mid-1990s. Like the first batch, this release was of 2000 bottles, and originally retailed on the high street for around £80(!). A much higher proportion of casks filled in the 1960s were sherry, and Black Bowmore is proof of the quality of some of those casks. With an almost unfathomable concentration and intensity of flavour, and perfect balance of fruit, peat and power, this whisky deserves the frequently overused `legendary` tag and has assumed almost mythic status amongst whisky collectors and aficionados.
