    Golden honey, oily nuances, passion fruit, syrup soaked with peat smoke.
    Lavender, iodine, vanilla beans, charcoal-floured golden peaches, mint nuances, viscous fruity finish.

    The 90's Bowmore is a little oily with some lavender-like nuances, but it's peety, fruity and tastes exactly what you expect.

    After all, the latter half of the bottle becomes viscous and has a more tropical fruity feel with oily nuances.

    It is an impression that it is finished from opening than the hand fill of the same Sherry of the same vintage that has appeared so far, but it seems that there is also a growth white, and over time, it seems that it will become viscous and it will swing more tropically .

    After drinking such a thing, Bowmore is one and only Iramalt and has a unique personality, and it seems to me that I like it after all.

    If possible, I would like to drink again in 5-10 years, so Bowmore was patient and would like to look for an auction.

    I wanted to drink this kind of Bowmore! A bottle that will help you.

    It's tropical! It's tropical! This Bowmore!
    "Dora ◯ Mon! I want to drink tropical Bowmore!" However, sake is only 20 years old! !
    The most famous vintage of 90's tropical bowmore is 1993, but this 1995 distilled bowmore has an amazing tropical feel.

    The bourbon barrel is ripened, so the honey from the barrel is solid, but more complex fruit flavors reminiscent of passion fruit, oriental citrus fruits, and coconuts. And as a result of the intertwining, they were very comfortable and full of happiness, and thanks to Nobi-kun, Dorae-kun came from the world of the future and introduced this Bowmore in 1995. It is not possible to partition. Of course, it was the staff of Bowmore Distillery who prepared this, and I knew that I wasn't even a monster. I want to thank you even if you understand.

    Fruity is so big that you can't get to the point where "Woodiness is" or "I feel the malt". Umami is a very important job of supporting the whole with the back of peat and fruit. Thanks to you, there is no sense of separation that comes to mind. The barrel sensation is present in order to bring out the rest of the honey and the lingering spice to the tropical fruit, and to enhance the fruity scent even with the honey and spice.

    After a long time, I drank a very delicious Bowmore ...! ! ! ! !

    I think that it is a masterpiece bottle of 90's Bowmore after a long time, assuring that you can truly think.

    I am secretly hoping that with careful polite aging, we can also approach tropical bowmore of the 1960s.
    • Nose
      It begins gently and becomes stronger gradually. The first is a medium peat smoke, a clear passion fruit that emerges from the cut, honey, kumquat, and a strawberry in honey. Gradual creaminess gradually appears. Creme brulee scented with orange liqueur. Authentic fruity Ira malt.
    • Taste
      The mouthfeel is equivalent to the frequency. Pete's claim is stronger than the scent, but it is calm enough not to claim too much. Honey pickled citrus incense is clearer, with a complex sweetness and bitterness reminiscent of a mixed marmalade of colorful citrus fruits from green to red, as well as sweetness like coconut milk. Peat and fruit are mainly inconspicuous, but the malt flavor has a mature feeling to support from below. The body is thick, making it difficult to share the finish.
    • Finish
      It shifts from taste to hard to maintain, maintaining fruity sweetness and gentle creamy. From there slowly honey pickled ginger spice, a little mint. They continue for a long time while intertwined.

    • Finish
      91 91
      Long finish! Salty and liquerice through and through. Great Balance between salt / tar / marina vs the trpical salad. Slightly Chemical in the very end.

    Very beautiful whisky with fruity smell and taste, the finish is not that long, or the rate could be some bit higher. Can feel the passionfruit and some other exotic fruit in this dram, very beautiful and special.
