Islay is renowned in the scotch world for being the home of the biggest and baddest single malts of the smokey/peaty character that so divides the scotch community. Bowmore is by no means an over-the-top expression of this style and has even been jokingly referred to as the breakfast dram because of its relatively easy-going character. Don’t mistake that well-rounded nature for inferiority though, this is widely regarded as one of the best value whiskys in the market.

Tasting Notes

The Bowmore 12 year old is very true to the coastal flavour profile with sea breeze, buttered kippers, zesty citrus, caramel, and a strong seashell salinity that surges in the slightly peaty finish. This is definitely a staple of any scotch collection, and a great introduction to the world of Islay whisky and coastal style.


Aged for 12 years, chill filtered and bottled at 40%.

Our Thoughts

This Scotch smells like a horse barn in the best possible way. Leather, hay, barley, and cereal grain with some green apples. Light mouthfeel, with spice on the tip of the tongue, and chocolate covered pomegranates. Salt water taffy. Very lightly smoky.
