1964 was an iconic year at Scotland’s Bowmore Distillery, though that fact wouldn’t be known for decades. The casks laid down that year produced the legendary Black Bowmore, along with the Gold and White Bowmores that make up the Bowmore Trilogy series. Turns out there was one cask from 1964 left….a Fino Sherry cask that will be available later this year as the Bowmore 1964. Turns out it’s also the same cask that Morrison Bowmore’s Iain McCallum poured me a sample from during my visit to his blending lab in 2010…without telling me what it was.
