A beautiful bottle of Bowmore Sherriff 'Ship Label' from the 1960s. Rather than confining their traditional ship motif to a small crest, this bottling uses the whole label, to great effect.
Colour: straw. Nose: grassier, and much less smoky than the 7yo, but again, quite mineral, on oil, stone, lamp petrol, clay. Hints of ripe apple and pear. Some bitter almonds and cod oil. Not too enjoyable, I’m afraid… Mouth: very nice this time, with quite a lot of fruits and smoke. Too bad it then gets a little dusty and drying, with some strange hints of green olives. Gets a little flat. The finish is rather short, on cardboard. Perhaps was this bottle a little tired? 75 points will do.These two Bowmores were tasted at Whiskyship Zurich.
