Whisky Reviews for Bowmore 1964 Black

5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 94.23 points

  1. Whyvern scored this whisky 95 points Member Senior

    Price / performance back and forth, here offers the inclined and happy whisky drinker the expansion of the taste spectrum. The experience is definitely unique.
    • Nose
      Fruits, very old wood
    • Taste
      First some wood, then pure cassis liqueur. I can not describe it differently.
    • Finish
      Medium long, no mistakes, it stays fruity.

  2. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    In the smell damn fruity-fresh, but in an unusually youthful way, surprisingly. Overwhelming. I never thought that was 40+ years of sherry keg (which I could extrapolate from the older sherry whiskys I know), but "wow, what's that?" So fresh, dark, juicy berries, blackberries, black currants and especially gooseberries, red, juicy gooseberries, as they grew only with my grandfather on the garden path from the neighbor's garden. And even a light acidity, vinous, dark berry wine.
    The taste then again the full berry bowl, but no acid, but dryness, a pleasant, velvety dryness, which lays over the entire mouth. And dark dark chocolate, decent and long, no wall unit, no excessive bitterness, a noble whisky, not pretentious-boldly-brutal. And it changes, the berries are brighter and more exotic, passion fruit, mango, memories of the secret snacking on the basement shelf as a child come on (google-> sambalita) and the dark chocolate joins walnut and some tobacco. Long but not penetrating, leaving behind a velvety-clean mouthfeel. Top.

  3. checkpointuk scored this whisky 93 points Connoisseur

    http://www.weinkenner.de/2014/sechs-schottische-single-malts-aus-dem-jahr-1964-inklusive-black-bowmore-33289/2/ Color: mahogany with a light reddish tint
    Nose: primarily wild berries, oranges and tobacco. Then there are notes of Serano ham, mint, leather and black fruit jam (elderberry, forest and blackberries and plums). Sea water, shells and iodine - very maritime.
    Taste: Salty-spicy, fat and intense. Sherry, oranges, chocolates, honeyed herbal flavors and delicate bitter elderberry juice. Then dried tobacco leaves, oak and notes of cherry cola to the finish.
    Finish: Long and dry - a bit woody. Citrus fruits and dark red cherries, ginger dried garden herbs and nettle tea. Reviving aromas of wild berries, plum jam and heavy smoky tobacco notes.
    93 points (nose: 94 / taste: 92 / finish: 93)

  4. mmaclean did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Tasting note By John Hansell of Malt Advocate
    What impresses me most is how this whisky evolves; it`s incredibly

    complex. On the nose and palate, this is a thick, viscous, whisky with

    notes of sticky toffee, earthy oak, fig cake, roasted nuts, fallen

    fruit, pancake batter, black cherry, ripe peach, dark chocolate-covered

    espresso bean, polished leather, tobacco, a hint of wild game, and

    lingering, leafy damp kiln smoke. Flavors continue on the palate long

    after swallowing. This is what we all hope for (and dream of) in an

    older whisky!

  5. Feusi did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Over its many years of distillation, Bowmore has produced some outstanding, iconic limited edition bottlings. This particularly stunning example of Bowmore was distilled on the 5th of November 1964. The spirit was carefully filled into exceptional Oloroso sherry casks then laid down to mature deep in the distillery vaults below sea level.
