Description

The final edition of Black Bowmore 1964 Finest Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky, bottled in 1995.

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 31 years below sea level in the distillery vaults, before bottling at 49% ABV in 1995. Each bottle is numbered and signed by James McColl, Bowmore Distillery Manager from 1960 to 1968.

This is bottle number 545 of 1821.
