A 1968 vintage bottling from Bowmore, released to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the foundation of Stanley P Morrison (later to become Morrison Bowmore). This is a big bold whisky with notes of passion fruit and a peaty kick.
Colour: dark straw. Nose: starts on heavy tangerine, grapefruits, ripe melon. Then you have a desert with some vanilla ice cream and all sorts of fruits, mainly freshly cut pears and apples. Great notes of old rum and banana flambéed. Fantastic! Goes on with lots of passion fruit. Whiffs of smoke… It then goes back to vanilla and fruits and doesn’t change anymore, but the fruity burst right at first nosing is stupendous. Mouth: big bold citrus (grapefruit, lemon) and passion fruit. Goes on with a ‘nice’ bitterness: grape seeds, pineapple, white pepper. Not overly complex but very big. The finish is long, but slightly bitter. In short, a fabulous nose and a good palate. 91 points.
