A classic, floral Bowmore from the late 1980s, showing off the love-it-or-hate-it character of the era. Sweet, with gentle smoke and a solid Parma-violet note running through the palate.Tasting Notes (1)
- Parma Violet
Tasting notes by Ollie C
Rock pools by the seaside and Parma violets. At first there seems to be green banana skins but with time this develops into heavier banana bread with currents and sultanas. There is a waft of aromatic perfume oil that seems to accentuate with time in the glass.
Thick and juicy with bags of ripe fruit, bananas in particular and sweet spice. Cloves, vanilla and boiled sweets temper some of the spicy wood; with time, a clean crispness comes through. More floral notes take over the palate creating a perfumed backdrop to the soft, candied smoke.
It is all about the perfume intertwined with gentle smoke that lingers on the palate.
This is classic of its era and should be approached as such. Some people suggest that all Bowmores with that Parma violets style are of a lesser quality, but this particular bottling is clean and still gives those classic fruit and smoke flavours.
