The Bowmore Aston Martin Masters' Selection Edition 2 22 Years Old single malt whisky was created collaboratively between the two brands, from defining the desired spirit character and selecting cask styles to the exterior design. To create the 22-year-old expression, Bowmore's master blender Ron Welsh combined liquids matured in American oak hogsheads and sherry butts, distilled in 1997 and 2000 respectively.
Nose: Tobacco leaf smoke, baking spices, orchard peaches, honey drizzled oranges.
Palate: Creamy mouthfeel, pleasantly smoky and slightly sweet orange. On the back palate there is a hint of coffee, chocolate and a tiny bit of ash.
Finish: Lingering with notes of oak and a continuation of the coffee and chocolate from the palate.
