Tasting notes

From Whiskyfun.com

Colour: gold – amber.

Nose: we have the much anticipated blast of tropical fruits right at the start, with lots of pink grapefruits, papayas, guavas, mangos and truckloads of passion fruit. It gets then a little waxy, with also notes of caramel rice, a little smoke, heather, hints of sandal wood, balsam, light cigarette tobacco (Virginia). Typically 1968 Bowmore (remember, when a truck loaded with ripe mangos went into the ditch next to the filling station ;-)) Quite some caramel, whiffs of white pepper, and always quite some tobacco. It keep developing for a long time (on wax, eucalyptus, camphor, old books) and then we have also notes of forest after the rain (pine needles, ferns, moss…) Just superb.

Mouth: almost the same profile here, although it’s perhaps more on orange juice, tangerines, lemon squash… We have the usual tropical fruits cocktail, together with something resinous and then it gets quite cardboardy – not excessively. It’s very minty at that, with spearmint and also citronella.

The palate is perhaps not as complex as the nose but it’s still really excellent, with a rather long finish despite, perhaps, kind of a weakness, on lemon zests and smoked tea. A true classic, anyway. 91 points
