Bowmore 12 Year Old 1980s Dumpy

Bowmore distillery is a name that needs no introduction. The oldest distillery on Islay, Bowmore has built up an unwavering reputation for quality. This iconic Bowmore dumpy is a 12 year old bottling from the 1980s, a true traditional bottling of Bowmore.

Bowmore is the oldest distillery on Islay however it didn’t have much notable history until Suntory bought 35% in Morrison-Bowmore in 1989. After this point we saw huge changes in how Bowmore was marketed to the world. The launch of Black Bowmore in 1993, arguably, signalled the induction of whisky as a collectable asset. Suntory bought Morrison-Bowmore outright in 1994. Following this was the launch of Bowmore 15 Darkest in 1999, and the eventual release of the oldest and most sought-after Bowmore stocks to the world. There was also the change in distillate style after Suntory became involved, with the pre1990 stock of Bowmore always being given the ‘lavender’ moniker.
