My Handcrafted Opinions on Whiskies, Distilleries and Other Related Stuff

Bowmore 12 year old

The nose has of course the smoky peat but also some honey and malt sweetness as well. The taste is a little on the palate at first, more smoke and then citrus fruit and caramel. Some bitter oak in the finish, freshly polished, which is also a little dry. With water it gets a little sweeter, almost burnt sugar, with some lemon. Also brings up heat and pepper in the finish. It's good but I much prefer the spectacular 15 year old Darkest from Bowmore.
