Bowmore 12 Year Old
The first official recorded mention of Bowmore Distillery was in 1779 but a few local whisky drinkers would probably tell you they started distilling a decade before. Bowmore is proud to have the accolade of being Islay’s oldest distillery and with that comes generations of traditions, skills and expertise that have been handed down through the years. The 12 year old is a great entry level single malt with a greater emphasise on tropical fruits and smoke than the classic Bowmore’s. There are pronounced smoky pineapple, peach and mango flavours with subtle lemon and honey on the tongue, followed by a medium-peaty finish.
