One is called simply "Bowmore Claret", and has "Bordeaux casked" underneath. It has been bottled at 56%. I bought this about six months ago.
The other is called "Bowmore Dusk" and also has "Bordeaux casked" underneath, but this has been bottled at 50%. I bought this last weekend.
The cardboard tubes that each come in have different artwork designs on them.
Was one an earlier bottling and they then changed their marketing approach? Or did Bowmore consciously market two different strengths and name them differently? Either way, they both appear to have been finished in the claret casks.
Can anyone help?
The first of these two was Bowmore Claret; because of the heavy demand they came up with the "Dusk". I have both of them but as they are not open I am unable to tell the difference. During a tasting I bought a dram of "Claret", but unfortunately drowned it by pouring too much water in it. Undiluted I was a little bit disappointed but some days you like a certain whisky and some other day not. Maybe I was in the wrong mood....
