Signatory 35 year old 1970 vintage (distilled at Bowmore), 51.9%

Price: $500 Issue: Fall 2006 Reviewer: John Hansell

Lush, thick fruit and chewy toffee soothes the assertive notes of earthy peat and leafy bonfire. Underlying smoked nuts, brine, kalamata olives, and tobacco provide continued entertainment. A complex whisky that completely envelops the palate. This is an excellent example of a mature, sherried Bowmore.
