Whisky Reviews for Bowmore 12-year-old

- Almost a bit boring. Many notes, but not strong. The smoke as expected. In sum, a good beginner without being overwhelmed.
- Very reserved smoke, almost imperceptible. Blind, I think he is an Irishman, because he has these typical green notes in the nose, a total of quite bitter and spicy, little fruit but actually quite delicious
strong spiciness, Maggi, a bit fleshy, somehow pungent, a greenish iris note, a bit of green crop and hay seeds, a touch of cherries, especially from the pulp, very light smoke
decent onset for 40%, light smoke a bit moldy and earthy, spicy, a hint of dates, slightly bitter, like too long-drawn black tea and oak tannins in the transition to the finish
the bitterness remains, oak, very slight smoke billowing through
- It is not a complex but soft Islay. Delicious and not that overwhelming.
Soft smell of smoke and peat, slightly medicinal. Sweet raisins with a slight smell of oak. Soft fruity (pear? & Banana) with caramel. After some time the spicy, vanilla and sherry tones come through. A beautiful complex composition.
Sweet and soft salty with a mild smoke and peat taste. Leather, iodine, honey and surprising fruity notes. Has a light and airy mouthfeel. After some time, floral notes and liquorice also come through.
Mild but long aftertaste rich in smoke and medicinal notes. The liquorice will hang nicely.
