Complex yet perfectly balanced, our 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". We like to think of it as vanilla ice cream at a beach bonfire.
On the eye warm amber.
Breathe in subtle lemon and honey, balanced beautifully by Bowmore's trademark peaty smokiness.
Sip sweet and delicious heather honey and gentle peat smoke.
Savour the long, mellow finish.

Great for outdoors. Not the peatiest but that makes it more approachable for most.
Try some smoked salmon, langoustines, scallops or oysters with a little fresh lemon and a generous measure of our 12 Years Old to see for yourself just how perfectly they complement each other.
