    An outstanding piece of the rich, fruity, peaty and sherried Bowmore's of the 1960's.
    • Nose

      Floral. Fruits, especially pomelo, mango, plum and green apple. Orange peel. Sherry, milk chocolate, herbals, salted caramel and gerbeaud. Peat and tobacco.

      Long, bitter,sweet creamy, peaty.

  2. lincolnimp scored this whisky 93 points Connoisseur

    This is lovey, my sort of whisky when a whisky is this elegant at 43% it shows that higher strength is not needed, the balance is great on show here, nothing out of step.
    • Nose
      93 93
      Beautiful to be honest, stewed fruits galore, mango, peach, plum hints of orange but to go with that is brine and a little peat.

      Warm French pastry, fresh out the oven, and then something a little herbal and little floral with a returning biscuit note.
      If you leave it for 15 minutes some sweet cigar smoke emerges.
    • Taste
      94 94
      Fizzy and fruity is my first impression the fruit is is the front of the palate and coats your tongue, syrupy if you like and the fruit that the nose suggested is in the palate and then some.
      The fruit is not sharp but like a well stewed fruit cocktail.

      The peat is kept in check by the fruit and the is a lovely salted caramel note that adds to the overall profile.
    • Finish
      93 93
      Very elegant, sweet, fruity with the peat growing but always in the background.

    One of those great '60s bowmores with the ravishing exotic fruitiness in combination with fine dry smoke and finest sherry, the whole served in harmonious roundness. Excellent nose.

      Wow. There it is again, this grandiose fruitiness of the '60s Bowmores: rich passion fruit, mango, ripe crumbly apples, pink grapefruit, a few blackcurrants). Geranium and fine, dry smoke as well as a fine, salty, maritime note and pickaxe in the background. The sherry is also there (nutty milk chocolate), but perfectly integrated, never intrusive.
      Wonderfully elegant and expressive, changeable.

      Velvety, round start. Tight and concentrated. Dry smoke, again passion fruit, grapefruit, blackcurrants, with toffee. Nice volume and very nicely rounded.
    • Finish
      92 92
      Again, this great combination of dry smoke and the exotic fruitiness. Beautifully long and very harmonious and round. Will be dry, but not bitter at all. Ends with Marajuca
