    Introducing Bowmore 33 Year Old (The Changeling), an extraordinary single malt whisky that will transport you to the mystical and enchanting world of Islay. This captivating creation is the result of a unique collaboration between artist Frank Quitely and master blender Ron Welsh, who have seamlessly blended artistry and craftsmanship to create a whisky that is truly exceptional.

    The Changeling is the second installment in the Frank Quitely series, a collection that aims to capture the essence of Bowmore's native Islay island. Inspired by the ancient folktale of a blacksmith who saved his son from the clutches of the "Fairy Folk," this whisky not only tantalizes the taste buds but also tells a captivating story.

    Aged for an impressive 22 and 33 years, The Changeling boasts a complex and rich flavor profile that will leave you mesmerized. The aging process begins in American oak hogsheads before a final two-year maturation in white port and tawny port casks. 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.
