Color: bright gold.
Nose: complex, fine. White fruits (lilac, lily of the valley), candied lemons, juicy apples, vanilla, musk, a touch of exoticism (pineapple), green licorice, nuts, peat between land and sea, seaweed , seafood, chalk, charcoal, smoke that turns to soot, wax, a crackling fire, cilantro, fennel… Bowmore is written in black letters on the white walls of the distillery .
Palate: balanced, noble. Impressive, the attack on the palate is in line with the aromatic palette. This is to say its complexity and refinement. And what to write about how peat creeps into every fruity, vanilla, floral, milky, spicy, herbaceous, iodine and saline note on the taste palette. The finish is a bouquet of white flowers with bewitching scents.
Overall: long, delicious. At the start of the finish, a liquorice, vegetal peat (lime, reed), more oily than saline, delicately coats the taste buds. In its wake, it carries candied lemons, Williams pears, vanilla and coriander from the first nose. The circle is thus closed. Retro-olfaction and empty glass escape perfumes of fermentation and distillate flowing in the alcohol chest.
