I wanted to measure up the White Bowmore with small remnants of other great Bowies. And as the Austrian Whisky & Spirits Festival starts in some hours, where we have a stand, here are the short comments/scores of these:
Bowmore 40 y.o. Duncan Taylor Peerless Collection 5.1966 – 5.2006, Cask 3317, 171 btl., 43,2%
Comment: Amazing, one of the best 1966 versions out there, full and grand! This one has much more than the crazy fruit-berry-mix. Recommendation!
By the way: The sister cask 3317 (5.1966 – 8.2006, 43,5%) is almost as good: 93+
Bowmore 36 y.o. Hart Brothers 5.1966 – 10.2002, 40,0%
Comment: Discrete and noble in style, yet typical. A bit less on kitschy fruit and more on the wood. Many friends score it slightly higher.
Bowmore 33 y.o. Duncan Taylor Peerless Collection 11.1969 – 2003, Cask 6085, 42,5%
Comment: Of course, slightly peatier than 1964-1968, but it somehow holds back more than others, slightly less expressive.
