The Character of Islay Whisky 33 Years Old Fiona Macleod 1985 is a limited-edition single malt from an undisclosed Islay distillery (rumoured to be Bowmore), bottled by The Character of Islay Whisky Company. The whisky was distilled in 1985 and matured for 33 years. It was bottled in 2020 at 46.3%. The bottling is named after Fiona Macleod, the pseudonym of 19th-century Scottish writer and poet William Sharp. Bowmore is the oldest distillery on Islay. It was officially founded in 1779 by the local merchant David Simpson, although it is believed Simpson was already distilling whisky at the site for about a decade previously. Around 1837, the distillery was taken over by the twins James and William Mutter from Glasgow. The Bowmore Distillery Company Ltd. was founded in 1892 to manage the distillery. Bowmore was bought by J.B. Sheriff & Co. in 1925, and by the Inverness-based William Grigor & Son in 1950. The distillery’s current owners, Morrison Bowmore Distillers Ltd., took over the company in 1963. Morrison Bowmore became a subsidiary of the Japanese distilling giant Suntory in 1994. Bowmore is one of the three remaining Islay distilleries that still operates its own traditional floor maltings.
