N: [Tasted blind]. Most bizarre in that it smells of my dad! Jokes aside, we all know our parents have a distinct scent and mine rather poetically omits the aroma of 1964 Bowmore! Back on earth, this is bready with extraordinarily compacted cereals, putty, vanilla, tutti-fruity, a hint of creamy peat, a touch of farm. I find the profile neither particularly unfamiliar nor overtly striking/reminiscent, and yet there is something unusual/rare & yet ‘just so’. We must be in the 1970s, even probably the 1960s.
T: More compacted cereal fruits and a time-stretched [long summer days], lip-smacking developmental journey.
F: Concludes eventually with sweet-bitter-dry bourbon vanilla, but what happens before the end-goal is rather,.. ideal.
C: I cant place this at all. Theres nothing out of the ordinary in terms of alarming finishes, outrageous hyper-notes, bombs, tricks,.. Everything is [old skool] 'just so' and yet im not sure ive quite a reference for it - so actually in that way it is indeed 'out of the ordinary'. Revealed: Bowmore. The 'old man' asks me whether id ever had '60's Bowmore before. I wasnt sure i had, and i can confirm that this was my first.My score wavered between A- and A so today then: an A[-].
