Black Bowmore (1993)

Postby nikelaos » Wed Aug 26, 2009 7:59 am

Hello,

As a collector I'm quite nervous about some of my bottles being fake. :?

(I know. Probably I'm overreacting on the subject, but it's always on my mind. It's like a disease... especially as I'm already sure I bought three fake Bowmores a few years ago :cry: )

I have doubts on my Black Bowmore first edition (1993).

There aren't many good pictures of the top of the bottle (wax seal and black ribbon) on the net, so it is hard to compare.

Can anyone help me by sending some detailed pictures of the bottle (wax seal and ribbon)?

You would save my day! :)

Thank you for helping me out!


Nikelaos.

Hi,

I knew about Hans Sommers website, but the picture isn't detailed enough.

Thanks anyway!

What are your concerns of your bottle?

The wax seal on the 1993 Black Bowmore had one trait that is hard to fake. The wax is very brittle. If that us your concern .. No worries!

I am happy for you to send me some photos via the Mail service on this site.

Kind regards

Dog

Aha, it worked!

Hope you can download it, because it's quite a detailed picture.

Any thoughts are welcome.

Thank you!

I have some new pictures of the top of the bottle.

Can someone recognise this as the original wax?

Any experts?

You could save me a nightmare :wink:

Thanks!
