Birthday Session 2.8
You think you know what exotic fruits are. You're cute :)
As pointless as it is, let's fulfill our duty and give you a glimpse : passion fruits, mangos, cherimoyas, raspberries, kiwis, lychees, pineapples, lemons, limes. But this all feels very whole, very united as one concept, it is like the platonic idea of exotic fruit if you want. No peat that I can detect, all of it has been transmutated by time. Most of all, this is so FRESH, so vibrant, so youthful. Palate is superbly fresh as well, juicy, vibrant, quite present for this rather low proof, with passion fruits, pineapples, raspberries, peonies. The finish might not be obscenely long but it is delicous, on café-crème, turkish delights and grapefruit.
Superb, I only wish I could have this again some day on its own to analyze it further and enjoy it without intense sensory stimulation beforehand.
Compared to the (nonetheless excellent) Bowmore 1973-2016 43yo we had yesterday, this feels much more expressive and immediate on the exotic fruit debauchery that you would expect from a Bowmore ... from this era ;)
Frank, eternal thanks.
(The only one that we are not having blind today.)
