This Bowmore 1964 encapsulates the fresh, crisp and cooling coastal atmosphere of Islay. Aged for nearly half a century, the whisky's home was a specially selected North American bourbon cask followed by a Fino Sherry cask, during which the characteristics of the whisky have evolved and refined to create a teasingly complex and elegant balance, enhancing the top note of fresh fruits and gentle sea-salt, lengthening and cooling the palate and leaving a beautifully elegant finish.
On the eye sunset gold.
Breathe in ripe peach water, floral rose water and just a wisp of smoking barley.
Sip lusciously ripe peaches, but balanced by a more acidic note - juicy blood oranges or sharp pink grapefruit.
Savour wood with coconut creams and sweetness, leading to a finish of gentle peat fires glowing in the dusk.
