Serge Valentin, Ruben Luyten and Johan van Samang, three (former) whisky bloggers I immensely respect, all gave this Bowmore 1996 from The Whisky Agency high scores and even higher praise. I hope it can live up to that.
"This bottle contains a vatting of the oldest stocks in the Bowmore Distillery. Some of it was distilled in 1950, twenty-nine years ago. In fact the vatting contains whisky from ten different years between 1950 and 1966 – all very rare."
