[March, 2001] I had this dram during an Islay charity tasting at Rheinhotel Dreesen.
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 this 92,5. Unfortunately no detailed notes were taken.
But I noted the results of the charity auction:- https://www.whiskybase.com/whisky/11079/bowmore-1976-ud = 610 DM (305 Euros)- https://www.whiskybase.com/whisky/16877/bruichladdich-15-year-old = 270 DM (135 Euros)- https://www.whiskybase.com/whisky/11192/caol-ila-1966-gm = 540 DM (270 Euros)- https://www.whiskybase.com/whisky/8341/bowmore-1964-black
= 2900 DM (1450 Euros, no one placed a bid at the mininum price of 2900
DM during the first auction round - in a second round with a reduced
starting bid it was hammered at this price)- https://www.whiskybase.com/whisky/6201/killyloch-1972-sv = 3500 DM
(1750 Euros, no one placed a bid at the mininum price of 2900 DM during the first
auction round - in a second round with a reduced starting bid it was
hammered at this price)- https://www.whiskybase.com/whisky/7342/ardbeg-1967-sv = 560 DM (280 Euros)- https://www.whiskybase.com/whisky/20157/macallan-195859 = 560 DM (280 Euros)-
a Macallan distilled 17.10.1988, bottled 22.12.2000 port finish for 400
days in a port quarter cask by Werner Hertwig, Berlin, bottle no. 3 of
30 = 140 DM (70 Euros)- https://www.whiskybase.com/whisky/23694/glen-grant-1965-sv = 670 DM (335 Euros)- https://www.whiskybase.com/whisky/8203/laphroaig-1966-sv = 710 DM (355 Euros)
The final result of this auction (10.650 Deutschmark or 5.325 Euros) was donated to charity projects on Islay.
Sweet (ish) with a peculiarly limp peatiness that has to be searched for. Very odd!
Light and exceptionally malt-rich at first, salivatingly so. The smoke is no more than a wisp, followed by an absorbing mix of bittersweet spices.
Soft peppers, chocolate, vanilla and an almost apologetic, yet delicious, hint of peat.
One of the lightest, least peaty Bowmores I've tasted. Really delightful.
