Bowmore 12

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.

Reviews for Bowmore 12 Year Old
Wonderful smokey and woody whisky
Very much on par with the 15yr with a great smokey frontal flavour that lingers on the palette. Very smooth in the mouth and as it goes down, no burning or harshness with a gentle warmth. The smell is, once again, nearly on par with the 15-year - wood and leather, just what I love in a whisky.
My husband and I would definitely buy this again and recommend it to others, my 2nd favourite whisky to the 15yr Bowmore.

Lovely drop of whisky
A honeyed and smokey nose. Warm and delicious on the palate, with subtle dark chocolate flavours and a gentle smokiness. Long and mellow finish. A drop of water enhances the honey and adds a bit of lemon to the nose and taste but it reduces the smoke and chocolate flavours.

Posh bottle
Bowmore whisky looks like a proper whisky bottle, and it comes in a box, that's perfect for a special occasion or as a gift. The taste is great, but feels like it's a bit too strong or too weak.

Love it
I loved this whisky. It was rich and complex, with hints of dark chocolate, ash, smoke, salt, and more. I didn't taste much zest, but that's okay. It was a classic Bowmore, smooth and satisfying.

A Coastal Symphony of Smoky Elegance
Bowmore 12 is a true standout, embodying the essence of the Bowmore range. In essence, Bowmore 12 is a classic, smoky, fruity, and delicious choice – a must-try for those seeking a sophisticated whisky experience. Highly recommended for its impeccable balance and complexity.

As advertised
Honey, mango, and smoke. Wow what a flavor profile for a scotch. I got this as a gift because I ignored it looking at the reviews here and other sites.

It's something else it's just an amazing taste profile that's so smooth and yet has a lot with oban 14 has going on but in a more tropical direction with more smokiness.

I bought this along with the clynelish and damn they're both good it's just the bowmore is so unique, like the oban in its taste profile that it makes it more desirable me.

Easy to drink
Slight smokiness and smooth easy to drink. Not sure I’d buy a bottle but I’d be happy to be poured it.

Very poor.
I get almost nothing on the nose except for pepper and a faint hint of smoke.

On the tongue it is anemic, with a very watered down mouth-feel, and a very short finish that leaves almost no flavour lingering in the mouth.

It has caramel colouring, which is also less than desirable.

I’ll likely never buy another bottle.

Disappointing as I like Islay malts. I would recommend Ardbeg, or Laphroaig, or bunnahabhain which are not much more expensive for a more reasonable Islay expressio
