Bowmore 22 Year Old Masters’ Selection, Beam Suntory-owned Bowmore has unveiled the second expression in its Masters’ Selection series with luxury car manufacturer, Aston Martin.
A partnership Bowmore says is rooted in mutual high craftsmanship, the Aston Martin collaboration has a second expression to add to its portfolio: Bowmore Aston Martin Masters’ Selection 22-Year-Old single malt whisky.
Bowmore says the 22-Year-Old single malt boasts notes of honey sweetness, peach, and apricot that evolve into bolder medicinal aromas, with fresh tobacco, cloves, and eucalyptus. On the palate, an initial medicinal saltiness which later gives way to sweet notes of honey and subtle peat smoke.
Marek Reichman, Chief Creative Officer, Aston Martin, commented on the partnership, “For Aston Martin we are always striving to push the boundaries, be that design, engineering or performance, to achieve the very best in each car we create. We are fueled by passion, but also by partnership. In coming together with Bowmore, we can imagine, discover, and create together, taking inspiration from one another constantly. Working together to create synergies and bridges between our two worlds feels very natural so we’ve achieved a powerful harmony built on mutual respect, trust and understanding.”
Ron Welsh, Master Blender, Bowmore, added, “We talk about shared synergies between the contrasting worlds of Bowmore and Aston Martin and this is what truly defines the relationship Marek and I have formed. We have relished in the opportunity to share experiences, ideas and thoughts from each other’s world’s, listening and learning from the inherent skill, knowledge and creativity we both possess. In collaborating as guardians of our respective legacies, we recognize the honour bestowed upon us.“
