Bowmore Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky 12 Year
Scotch Whisky /40% ABV / Scotland
- Scotch Whisky
- Years Aged
Complex yet perfectly balanced, our 12 Years Old reflects the raw essence of Bowmore - thrashing waves, windswept landscapes and generations of tradition. Bowmore 12 Years Old has received much critical acclaim; the late, great whisky writer Michael Jackson proclaimed it "remarkably long and complex". We like to think of it as vanilla ice cream at a beach bonfire.

If you like single malts especially Lagavoulun this 12 year old is top notch the price is great and the Scotch is smooth ,warm, peaty,and has the lingering taste of a great Scotch on your palate you will not be disappointed

This is a good example of the variety of islay single malts. The nose is the most enjoyable part of this pour. Heavier on the heather (sometimes tasted as cardboard or antiseptic) than the peat. Citrus, sea salt and heather rule this. The finish is thin and focuses on that heather/antiseptic note. Not what I was anticipating, but nice as a counterpoint to peatier islays
This is my budget alternative to Lagavulin 16. There isn't a huge difference in my enjoyment, but it's ~40% cheaper. It's peaty, smokey, spicy, smooth, and a during the long finish I find it a touch sweet. Hands down my favorite scotch for the dollar.
