Bowmore Gold 44 year old (1964)

One of the greatest whiskies ever made – Bowmore’s legendary Gold

Aged: 44 years, sherry and bourbon casks

Colour: gold and warm, it almost looks like treacle

Strength: 42%

Price bracket: £3,200

Best for: guarding with your life

Nose: buttery, toffee, luxurious

Taste: so much fruit. Lychee, papaya, very exotic fruits fill your mouth with a long, slow endlessly satisfying aftertaste

Verdict: few whiskies can age this well and remain drinkable, those that make it this far while also maturing into something genuinely excellent are even rarer. This is one of the latter. Bloody excellent and worth selling your house for
