    whisky fun said,

    Bowmore 35 yo 1966 (43.7%, Kingsbury, cask #3300, 300 bottles, +/-2001)  Bowmore+1966+Kingsbury sounds pretty much like the ultimate combo, doesn’t it! And this Japanese bottling was selected by John McDougall. Let’s see what gives (while knowing that a 1973/1998 by Kingsbury was stunning – WF 93) Colour: full gold. Nose: an orgasmic combination of tropical fruits and a sooty smokiness. Like a tennis match between both universes, sometimes the passion fruits and mangos have the upper hand, sometimes it’s the very mineral peatiness. Watching the game: ham, seawater, high-end green tea, lemon, orange blossom, hessian and coriander/sorrel. What a game! Mouth: it could have been a little weak and dry at 35 years of age but it’s exactly the opposite that happens. Powerful citrus fruits and passion fruits with a magnificent ‘coastal’ peatiness. Brine, lemon juice, mangos, rocket salad, oysters, dill… Let’s shorten the litany, it’s just fab. Finish: medium long, ultra-clean, citrusy and rather more medicinal than other old Bowmores. Comments: I was about to ask you to call the anti-maltoporn brigade. Astonishing power, peatiness and fullness. Legend. SGP:756 - 95 points. PS: I think this was our 250th tasting note for a Bowmore - not that it matters!

  2. hs305 scored this whisky 96 points Connoisseur

    [September, 2003]  I had this dram during a MaRa "Islay" tasting at Limburg.  In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50
    - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 95+.  My notes state an extremely delicious fruity profile with a passion fruits spike.
