Bowmore Bicentenary 1979
A legendary bottle from the famous Bowmore distillery, Islay. A limited-edition bottle specially produced for the distillery's 200 year Anniversary (Bicentenary) in 1979. A must-have for the Bowmore fanatics. This bottle contains a vatting of the oldest stocks in the Bowmore distillery. Some of it was distilled in 1950, in fact, the vatting contains whisky from 10 different years between 1950 and 1966. Most of it has been matured in fine old sherry casks though some has been drawn from American casks. The bottle bearing the Morrison clan coat of arms is a replica of a hand-blown decanter and was filled in the distillery early 1979.
Reviews from this whisky are incredibly positive, with Whisky Jug stating "Bowmore Bicentenary is unspeakably good whisky and it’s hard for me to fathom how whisky could taste any better".
