Bowmore 1964 Fino Sherry Cask

Country: Scotland
Region: Islay
Type: Single Malt
Bottler: Distiller
ABV: 42.9%
Score: 98 points

This is the final cask from Bowmore’s legendary year of 1964…a Fino sherry cask left to mature for 46 years on Islay. As with the other 1964 Bowmores that make up the Bowmore Trilogy, this whisky is amazingly vibrant with a nose of peach pie, mango, nectarine, orange, and other tropical fruits, along with cream, nougat, raisins, and a slight touch of red apples. The taste is vibrant and fruity with peaches, pears, tangerines, orange peel, and a hint of ginger. The finish is very long, dry, and fruity, slightly tart and tropical, with just a hint of brine. Absolutely amazing!
