Bowmore 32 Years Old 1968 - Stanley Morrison 50th Anniversary
This limited edition of 1968 Vintage Bowmore comes from the distillery's considerable reserves of ageing whiskies, the single casks that were identified at a young age to be worth nurturing. Indeed, this was the last whisky to be distilled under the watchful eye of the late, great James McColl, who retired as Manager that year, but whose time at the distillery spanned some thirty years.
This whisky has been personally selected by Mr Brian Morrison to celebrate the 50th anniversary of his Father's (Stanley P Morrison) old company. This whisky has been chosen for its maturity and sweetness. Unlike some younger ages of Bowmore where strong Islay characteristics abound, this 1968 Vintage holds one in suspense. The balanced peatiness for which Bowmore is renowned comes later - a subtle reminder of why Bowmore is considered one of the great Islay whiskies.
