Bowmore 1968 32 Year Old / Stanley P Morrison 50th Anniversary

Islay’s oldest working distillery, Bowmore was established in 1779 and is now regarded as one of the most popular malts not only on Islay, but in the whole of Scotland. The distillery was acquired by Stanley P. Morrison in 1963, ushering in an era of iconic single malts, including the legendary Black Bowmore, credited by many as the genesis of whisky collecting, bottled in 1993. The distillery was bought under the control Suntory the year after (they had been stakeholders since 1989), and it remains one of the most collectible brands in Scotch whisky today. Bowmore is one of the few remaining Scottish distilleries to use its own floor maltings, providing them with 40% of their requirements.

An early 2000s bottling, this was distilled back in 1968 and bottled at 32 years old. The 1960s vintages produced following the takeover of the distillery are regarded by many as some of the finest whisky ever produced.

This was bottled to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the original Stanley P Morrison Company. It was personally selected by Brian Morrison.

One of 1,860 bottles.
