Bowmore 1964 Black Bowmore 2nd Edition Bottled 1994 70cl / 50%
The second edition of Black Bowmore 1964 Finest Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky, bottled in 1994.
The Bowmore distillery underwent an extensive upgrade in late 1963 to 1964 under new owners Stanley P Morrison. This included converting the stills from direct coal firing to indirect steam firing, and this bottling comes from the first distillation following the conversion. The spirit was filled into oloroso sherry casks and matured for 30 years below sea level in the distillery vaults, before bottling at 50% ABV in 1994. Each bottle is numbered by hand.
This is bottle number 1268 of 2000.
