Bowmore! Toast and Marmalade for tea...

Sailing ships upon the sea....

Anyone ever come across a Bowmore 75cl with a drawing of a sailing ship on it? lots of waves etc

I was given it as a gift by the distillery manager so have no idea of value. Tried the auction houses but couldnt find it listed, theres no age statement.

ps anyone remember that song?

Perhaps this one then?
Often referred to as the "ship label" (funnily enough).

If so it dates back to late 60's early 70's and is valuable, especially if it's the 26 2/3 fl oz - 70 proof version for the UK.

Mind you online retailer proces for rare bottles are more like ransom demands and at auction I would expect a sizable discount on value of about 40%, but still a valuable commodity if it is that one!
