Bowmore 12yo has a place in many hearts as Islay's 'medium-peated' malt. A pronounced iodine character with plenty of pepper, the current 12yo bottling is a welcome return to the classic Bowmores of the 1960s and '70s, with the emphasis on tropical fruit and smoke. A deserved runner-up in our Whisky of the Year 2014-15 blind tasting.
Producer's Tasting Notes
ON THE EYE
Subtle lemon and honey, balanced beautifully by Bowmore's trademark peaty smokiness.
Sweet and delicious heather honey and gentle peat smoke.
The long, mellow finish.
