Proof66 Notes

The Bowmore Distillery was officially founded in 1779 on the island of Hebridean Island of Islay. They take pride in hand-turning their barley in the malting room in the traditional practice, something seldom done in the modern era. They dry the barley over peat smoke and mature the whisky in casks facing the sea.

Bowmore was purchased by Morrison Bowmore Distilleries in 1963, which itself was purchased by Suntory in 1994.

Black Bowmore is a vintage from 1964 and bottled at 42 years of age. Its price is notional--of course--since it is immediately a collector's item. It was previously released under different vintage 12 years prior and bottled from the same Oloroso sherry casks. "A legend reborn... a must-have for wealthy Islayphiles," according to The Whisky Exchange.
