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.

Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by Stuart P

    • Nose

      Appetising combo of smoke and caramelised pineapple with a heady hit of tropical fruit.

    • Palate

      Some lovely smokiness, but the fruity elements really sing here: pineapple, peach and mango all dancing with the smoke that surrounds them. Great balance.

    • Finish

      Rather soft and relaxing, with the smoke gently fading.

  • Producer's Tasting Notes

    • On the eye

      Warm amber.

    • Breathe in

      Subtle lemon and honey, balanced beautifully by Bowmore's trademark peaty smokiness.

    • Sip

      Sweet and delicious heather honey and gentle peat smoke.

    • Savour

      The long, mellow finish.

    Jerry from Pa.

    I do like a pleated, smoke-flavored scotch, but not overpowering. Bowmore is the pick. Maybe not a solid 4-5, but certainly a very approachable Scotch for my taste.

    Great whiskey with a full cigar. Nice fruit up front and a whisp of smoke behind.

    Great value, great balance. The Islay character is there but nice balanced with the casks and good casks... And very salty lingering. Very nice smell. Get so much more than just the smoke.
