Black Bowmore 1964, has grown in stature over the past few years, with bottles now selling for 150 times the price they were first available for in the early 1990s.
|Bowmore Black 1964 - First Edition|
The first and second edition Black Bowmore bottlings, are respectively expected to fetch between £12,000 - £16,000 and £6,000 to £10,000.
Commenting on the news, Graeme Maxwell, McTear’s Whisky Specialist, said: “These are huge Islay malts that have established legendary status over the years. It’s unusual to have one bottle of Black Bowmore come to auction, but to have two in the same sale is extremely rare. We have already had interest in both and we expect a lively auction on Friday.”
In addition to the headline Black Bowmore 1964 bottlings, Friday’s auction will also include a Macallan 1958 Anniversary Malt and a Macallan 1963 The Northern Scot Centenary.
