Bowmore 1965 20 Years Sestante (ABV 49.1%)


A legendary Bowmore, bottled by Gordon and Macphail for Italian importer Sestante back in the mid 1980s. Distilled in 1965 and aged for 20 years, it's packed full of the fruit that mid-60s Bowmore is famous for.



Nose: wow, lots of the usual passion fruits mixed with some high-end bitter chocolate and some first class Italian coffee. Just wonderful. Mouth: on full fruit jam covered with white pepper. Lots of oomph… A great old Bowmore, perhaps not as complex as some other old ones (and a bit drier) but extremely compact and satisfying. What a great body! I love it: 92 points. (Thanks, Luc)
