Distilled on November 11, 1964 and released in Spring 2003. Colour: gold. Nose: a little closed at first – just some banana and some vanilla – but it’s soon to open up, on the 1960’s Bowmores’ main markers: tropical fruits (mainly passion fruit and ripe kiwi) and some very nice ripe gooseberry. Goes on with caramelised apple, old books, curry, and hints of violets. A superb nose, even if quite narrower than the oloroso version’s. Mouth: the attack is much more indefinite, but loads of dried herbs are soon to arrive. Quite peppery, with hints of mustard, and finally some peat.
Notes of cold over-infused tea. Goes on with white pepper and vanilla. The finish is very long, on caramel and pepper. Again a great one, but I liked the ‘oloroso’ just a little better.
