    Tasting note by Serge Valentin

    Bowmore 1964/1987 (46%, Moon Import, The Birds 1, Sherry hogshead, cask #1546, 240 bottles) Five stars This is 100% legendary. Bowmore 1964 (think the blacks, the fino/olroso/bourbon, the Bicentenaries…) and Moon’s first ‘Bird’ series… With a pedigree like that, what could happen? Colour: gold. Nose: it’s smooth and mellow at first nosing (don’t we sound like an old Chivas Regal advert?), not whispering but a little reserved, elegant, far from the extravagant blacks or even bicentenaries. Many very ripe tropical fruits but again, not of the ‘wham-bam’ kind. Mangos and beeswax, passion fruits and almond oil, oranges and oyster juice, guavas and sour cream… All that mingles together and gives us something unexpectedly delicate, with a restrained smokiness. An old Bowmore that’s rather ‘white tie’, if you see what I mean… Curious about the palate I must say…. Mouth: sweet Jesus! It’s the same that happens on the palate, albeit with more oomph. Much more oomph… A tropical fruit salad with the noblest spices and a little seawater sprinkled all over it. Excuse me, but that’ll do. Finish: long yet ethereal, tropical lace with a spicy/smoky ostinato… Comments: a Botticelli (c’mon, S., you can do better). Only the relative lightness on the nose will prevent me from going to 95+. SGP:745 - 94 points. (and heartfelt thanks Mr. Luc)

    Very open and cute. Despite the 46 degrees, in my opinion the fragrance is excessively delicate. Fresh, pleasant taste, though without a marine theme. Flowers.

    Bowmore 1964/1987 'The Birds', 46%, Moon Import, sherry hogshead # 1546, 240 bottles is a legendary (euh yes, really) Bowmore from Moon's equally legendary first 'Birds' series. This series also includes Ardbeg 1966 and Springbank 1965, which apparently are also reasonably drinkable. The tone at this Bowmore is sweet and sour. Sweet and sour fruit, herbs, light peat and a great farmy touch (again that smooth sweet and sour). Balsamic, indeed. The triumphal procession continues on the taste. Here too, a lot of fruit, which here - more than on the nose - is clearly known as tropical. Melon, passion fruit, you name it. Thick, creamy, almost syrupy. Man, man, this is leker. Feast on supreme ecstasy. 95/100 http://onversneden.com/2010/12/22/de-hoogmis/
