This meticulous finishing imparts a delightful depth and richness to the whisky, taking it to new heights of indulgence. Tasting Note by Bowmore:Nose: Unexpectedly colourful and flowery. Think of Turkish Delight, rose water, and potpourri as you experience its extreme lightness and perfume-like pungency. Despite its age, there are a few little wood notes behind the floral cloud, along with some sandalwood and even some new oak odours.Palate: With the ABV and oak spice, the strong perfume note that initially appears on the lips truly zips across the tongue and fills the mouth with a flowery sherbet sweetness that strongly reminds one of parma violets. Lavender, sugar, and heat make it up. They are accompanied by bitter clove and/or anise spices, as well as citrus fruits (pineapple, guava, and clementine).Finish: A final sweet nutty smell that makes me think of marzipan lingers after the perfume/sherbet note has faded away.
