Footnotes

  • Crafted To Perfection
    Bowmore 1961 is a celebration of not just one mastercraft but many, starting with the time-honoured skills of our small distillery team one cold winter's day on Islay.

    Translating their passion and expertise into the ancient art of glass-making, the bottle has been hand-blown by two of Scotland's - if not the world's - foremost glass artists, Brodie Nairn and Nichola Burns.

    The cabinet and stand used to cradle our precious spirits has been handcrafted with patience and skill by acclaimed woodsmith Peter Toaig from highly-prized burr elm grown in the Scottish Highlands.

    Providing the finishing touches and a solid sliver neck collar and stopper, and perpetual calendar, which allows you to look 50 years into the future, all fashioned by sixth generation silversmiths Thomas Fattorini.

    Tasting notes
    Breath in sweet almond frangipane in coconut milk, the fruitiness of apricots and crystallised orange, together with hints of black truffles and tea tree oil.

    Sip bursts of ripe fruit - figs, fleshy papaya, pomegranate and pineapple - intermingled with black truffles and gentle smoke.

    Savour the evolving finish of almond and caramelised pears interwoven with subtle peat oils.

    精雕細琢 完美無瑕
    波摩1961,源於艾雷島一個冬日我們酒廠小團隊由來已久的技藝,不僅是一位工藝大師的傑作,而是集合了眾大師之力的鉅獻。

    酒瓶由兩位蘇格蘭——如不是全球——最傑出的玻璃藝術家布羅迪•奈恩和尼古拉•伯恩斯手工吹製,將他們的熱情和匠心,化為古老玻璃藝術結晶。

    用來守護珍釀的酒盒和酒架,由著名木匠彼得•托伊格,以蘇格蘭高地的珍貴榆樹,用耐心和匠心手工製作。

    銀匠家族第六代傳人托馬斯•法托里尼為此珍藏作最後修飾,加上純銀酒環與瓶塞,並附上能前看50年的年曆。

    品酒筆記
    飄來椰奶甜杏仁餡、杏果及蜜餞橙的芬芳,還有黑松露與茶樹油的香氣。

    一呷充滿熟果如無花果、木瓜、石榴和菠蘿的味道,夾雜着黑松露與溫和的煙香。

    味道不斷變化,收結有杏仁、焦糖梨子與微妙的泥煤油相互交織。
