Released to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Stanley P Morrison (which later became Morrison Bowmore), this Bowmore 32 Year Old bottling is big and bold.
On the nose, it starts with a whack of a fruit cocktail – lots of tangerine, grapefruits and melon, with hints of rum, banana and vanilla ice cream that give way to peaty, smoky notes. The mouth confirms what the nose already knew – this is a fruity whisky with bold hits of citrus (particularly passionfruit) and pineapple.
It’s not all that complex, but boy is a whisky to behold.
About Bowmore Distillery

This Islay distillery sits on the shore of Loch Indaal in the centre of the town of Bowmore from which the distillery takes its name .Bowmore is also distinguished for producing the oldest ever Islay malt, being a 1957 malt bottled at 54 years old in a crystal decanter with a price tag of around the $125,000 mark.
