1966 was an important year for Bowmore. It was the first year that Bowmore bottled whisky under its own name, and it was the year that distillery manager Eddie MacAffer joined the company. Eddie retired in 2016, being awarded the lifetime achievement by Whisky Advocate magazine for his contribution to Scotch Whisky. Before he left, this whisky was bottled, a whisky that had joined him throughout his career, a liquid so rare that only 74 bottles could be produced.
