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.

Seaweed & Aeons 10yo

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


After one glass I feel like I've bought a very expensive bottle of disinfectant. I like scotch, and I like Islay whisky but this, no way, it's foul. One for the blocked drains.

Clearly you have to have a certain palate for this stuff - smells like tcp, tastes like tcp. There should be a warning for the uninitiated. VERY disappointed.

Why so negative?

I read negative reviews this and wonder what people expect for £25 (Morrison’s). It’s a nice smooth whiskey with a nice earthy salty vanilla and sea aroma. Easy on the palate and very drinkable. Don’t be put off by the negative reviews.

Don't taste like whisky

Bland, strong smokiness kills this whisky, not for for your average drinker. Maybe for smokers. Poor for the price. Not recommended.

Definitely a drinkable and enjoyable islay whiskey

It's no Lagavulin or Laphroaig which I love but it's definitely one of my favourite islay non the less. Was having a glass the other day and acc tasted olive in it of all things, I think its a very nice whiskey

Muhhhh so so

Interesting smoky smell and initial complex peaty taste let down by a cheap synthetic alcoholic aftertaste. Drinkable.

This is nice

A well rounded Islay whisky: a bit smokey, a bit medicinal, but doesn't really have a prominent character of its own. Nice to drink.

Does not taste like 12 YO

Too strong, notes does not come out, I think I wasted my money buying 2 X 75 cl. Somehow i feel 12 YO does not taste like this

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.
