Islay

The region of whisky producers known for their strong peaty flavor

Islay malts are the weightiest, most pungent and most heavily peated and are therefore generally the easiest to identify. These malts take their characteristics both from the peat used to dry the barley and their closeness to the sea. These factors give them what is often described as a seaweedy, medicinal taste and a distinct peaty flavor.

Bowmore 12 Years Old Islay Single Malt

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.

With the move to un-chillfiltered at a higher strength of 46.3%, the packaging has been slightly revised to complement the new expression. The label highlights the move to natural colour and un-chillfiltered. The bottle is now presented in a quality gift carton containing a booklet with information on the brand. This beautiful golden spirit?s nose releases honeyed nuts and a slightly sea-induced salty tang.
