Bowmore 12 Bottling Note

The heart of the Bowmore range, the 12 year old exhibits some beautiful coastal notes with a gentle peat, it is the balance that the floral element presents that makes this a great entry bottling for Bowmore.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Coastal smoke and ash soon make way for bergamot, orange zest, lemon slices and some hay before becoming rather floral, heather smoke now competing with the ash.

Palate: Lovely and rounded, honeyed even, initially. Vanilla, perfumed smoke and coastal elements develop. Dark Peat. Blossom, oily sweetness.

Finish: Smoky and long. Sea spray, dry grass, a touch of ash and citrus.

Overall: Classic stuff and the heart of the Bowmore range. Smoky, fruity, coastal, delicious.

Bowmore 12 Year Old Reviews

Didn't like it

Just had a glass of bowmore 12 year old waste of 26 pounds at tesco definitely wouldn't recommend it

Very good

I find this better then laphroaig 10. Ardbeg 10 is still better than both.

Not my taste - if you like smokiness you will probably like.

Sorry not for me tcp comes to mind
There is a chemical kind of after taste to me.
Im not into smoky whisky tried this based on some good reviews to try something new.
There are definately vanilla, honey and other nice elements but they are overpowered by the smokiness and chemical taste I got, for me anyway.

Great whisky

A lovely bold and rounded whisky. A strong smell of Oak, smoke and vanilla and honey hints. A great smoky taste with a pleasant warm after taste.

Lovely stuff!

Absolutely delicious in an easy drinking and sufficiently complex way. Lemon cheesecake notes with subtle smoke and peat. A lovely everyday dram.

A super drop !

Bowmore 12 captures the essence of the typical smoky whisky that is characteristic of Scotland's most famous island of Islay. Softer smoke, dark fruits, caramel, hints of peat and vanilla notes with barrel char makes this a great dram for the price.

Fantastic dram

A beautiful dram all round. It is ridiculously smooth, it easily puts to shame many 15yo and 18yo’s. It’s by no means a peat monster like a Laphroiag, the smokiness is moderate but still imparts a lasting impression. Truly one of the best whiskies in its class, that puts many much more expensive bottles to shame, an absolute steal when on deal.

A classic this one. Just old enough but still a bit raw

As an old moonshiner I`m not that easily fooled by certain flavored liqours. (- Hipster whisky`s) The new Japanese-influenced Bowmoore is a tragedy, while this old original is a treashure. just as a whisky should be, full bodyed, smoky and balanced. Still after many years I`ll come back to this one as one of my favorites. And at the same time it is a good beginners whisky.

Miles away from the Bowmore 15.

Smokiness was charcoal and not the pleasant wood smokiness of older Bowmore or Ardbeg and certainly miles away from a Lagavulin.

The oily mouthfeel on the palate is also interesting but not particularly pleasant. Aromas and flavors of orange and honey are present.

Overall this is a disappointing bottle from an otherwise quality producer.
