BOWMORE 12YO SINGLE MALT 700ML
Bowmore 12yo has a place in many hearts as Islay's 'medium-peated' malt. A pronounced iodine character with plenty of pepper, yet the malt is balanced and smooth as well as smoky Tasting Notes: NoseFloral and peaty. Wet earth. Cold fireplace. Opening on briny notes, fishing net. Smoke is rather distant. PalateSmooth, sweet. Peat is not discernable at first. Then a light smoky flavour. FinishMedium, drying on lime peel. A hint of dry ashes. CommentPeat is integrated in oak though wood is not overwhelming. Water changes the rules, bringing peat and smoke forward.
