Dram Review: Signatory Millenium Edition 1968 Bowmore

[43.0%・Distilled in 1968・Bottled in 1999・ 31 Years Old・Signatory Vintage Bottling・Cask No. 3817・Single Cask Release of 238 Bottles] 

Nose:

Clean for its age and a wee bit grassy, a hint of crisp bubbly perhaps, notes of vanilla, banana peels complimenting the malty weetbix base.

Palate & Finish:

A pleasurably juicy affair, bright orange peels seasoned with vanilla sugar, just a fantastic fruit bomb with tropical fruits bursting through.

Just a touch of bitterness in the finish to bring everything back from the sweeter fruits like papaya.

Thoughts:

Absolute tropical brilliance, perhaps not as high reaching as its siblings but nevertheless a thoroughly pleasing experience.

☆☆ [Highly Recommended]

P.S. Thank you Yuhun for the dram, it’s much appreciated.
