BOWMORE 1964/35YO, 82/99

Postby elihaf » Mon Feb 21, 2011 6:01 am

hi guys,

if you know anything about highly collectible whiskys the title here should have caught your interest.

i have in my possesion bottle no. 82/99 of cask no. 3709, the bottle is complete with its case and sample bottle.

The Whisky exchange is selling this bottle for £6100+ and its been steadily climbing ever since i purchased it from oddbins in 2000.

im looking to sell, where do you recommend?

thanks

Can be still be easily found for less than half of that, so do not expect to reach £5000+

Hi,

I am an interested collector, with little knowledge of whiskey - any idea of roughly how many of these bottles there are in existance?

thanks,
Janice

with due respect.
Mr Corbuso, you sound very sure of yourself, however, this is not the bottle that you are referring to.
Cask no. 3709 only produced 99 bottles, 4 of which went to the bowmore museum, the rest went on sale in 2000, i have no idea of how many are left but i assume of the 95 that went on sale to the public some are no longer existent. This is bottle no. 82 / 99. this is inscribed on the back of the bottle, and signed by the distillery manager, Islay Campbell.
i know which whisky you are referring to, that is another less valuable bottling they did at the time, not this one.

Please retract your statements

Basically we've been asked to guess here. How would anyone know unless they had a large portion of the bottles produced or if the opening were well published. My best guess is that no more than 10 have been opened and it is probably closer to 5.

A guess is indeed correct.
I have seen a very few opened but more than a handful in the cupboards of collectors in Europe (with the other members of the 1964 collection)

Simply a bit of context I think

Thank your for summarising my thoughts
