Product Details

This very rare bottling of Bowmore was bottled in 1979 in celebration of the distillery's 200th anniversary.

Regarded by some experts as one of the best Bowmore malts ever, it contains a vatting of whisky from ten different years between 1950 and 1966 - with the majority maturing in sherry casks - and is one of 24,000 bottles that were released for the momentous occasion.

This superb piece of Islay history scored a showstopping 96 points on Whiskyfun and comes complete with original presentation case, COA and cork stopper. Note, there are a few small scuff marks on the box.

I just opened my bottle of Bowmore Bicentenial # 17109 , which I bought 38 years ago for $150 . It is without a doubt the best whisky I have ever tasted and so smooth . Then i found out how much it is worth now and a great BIG smile appeared on my face that even death could not erase . It is now stored in my gun cabinet . Thanks to all the Bowmore distillers that had a hand in its production , expertise certainly shines through .
