Bowmore 1965 Laird's Club Bottled 1985 - Gordon & MacPhail 75cl / 40%
09 April 2019
A bottle of Bowmore single malt Scotch whisky. This was distilled in 1965, bottled by Gordon & MacPhail in 1985, and selected by David Le Cornu for the Laird's Club Selection No.1 in September 1992.
The Laird's Club is a series of bottlings from David Le Cornu, founder of Earl of Zetland, a specialist whisky bar and hotel in Adelaide, Australia, which was also home to three of Adelaide's whisky clubs from 1985 to 1995.
This is bottle number 12 of 59.
Bowmore started distilling in 1779, though there is no evidence of whisky production until John Simpson was granted a licence to distil in 1816. The distillery passed through several hands, and even supplied a cask to Windsor Castle, before it was purchased by perhaps its most famous owner, Stanley P Morrison, in 1963. Bowmore maintains its own floor maltings which supply 40% of its barley, and is known for its medium-peated character. The whisky is left to mature in the No.1 Vaults, which is said to inhabit a unique microclimate, perfect for long periods of maturation.
