    Colour:
    gold
    Nose:
    In a nutshell: fruit & tea! Tropical fruits combined with elderberry, blueberry and plum. Then there is dusty leather, some cardboard and then more tea. This combination always works! The flavor is almost zero, the sweetness is very subtle and leaves a lot of space for fruit and tea - very harmonious and great!
    Taste:
    Spicy herbs interspersed with soft oak. The fruit notes are somewhat suppressed by the salty, tart wood and herbal notes. Now there are hints of mocha, espresso and liquorice and the result is a completely different profile than the nose suggests - but very nice (92-).
    Finish:
    Medium length - the bitter combination fades away slowly and makes room again for the fruit & tea. Honey and delicate vanilla accents complete the finale. A little better than before (92+) and tending towards the nose again.
    Comment:
    The nose typical Bowmore - the taste rather less!
