The Bowmore Balance – Complex yet perfectly balanced, this 12 Years Old reflects the raw essence of Bowmore – thrashing waves, windswept landscapes and generations of tradition. Bowmore 12 Years Old has received much critical acclaim; the late, great whisky writer Michael Jackson proclaimed it “remarkably long and complex”. Warm amber. Subtle lemon and honey, balanced beautifully by Bowmore’s trademark peaty smokiness .Sweet and delicious heather honey and gentle peat smoke. Long, mellow finish .
