Whisky Reviews for Bowmore 12-year-old

7 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 83.75 points

  1. The Macallan scored this whisky 75 points Connoisseur

    This is a delightful Islay whisky, a warm Bowmore with some nice aroma nuances and dito flavors. An alltime favorite.
    • Nose
      Gentle smokiness, slightly sweet, caramel, butterscotch and oloroso sherry influences.
    • Taste
      Quite full, small explosion of peat, malty with a coating of pepper, heavy and briny.
    • Finish
      Dry, firm, long with a wiff of peat and some sweetness.

  2. hs305 scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    [August, 2012]  I had this dram during a birthday tasting of a friend.

    In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 80.  I took no detailed notes.

    Really, this is not my favorite - I'm not sure if I will ever empty this bottle.
    • Nose
      Little smoky, salty, seaweed, honey and something artificial - probably rubber
    • Taste
      Very artificial flowery, violet, perfume, medicine (the bad one)
    • Finish
      Medium long, even more medicinal and artificial - it's soapy like a foam bath

    this "antique" bottle is a somewhat unobtrusive thing with clearly maritime influences; shows imperturbable charm and is quite interesting.
    • Nose
      Honey, salty, gum, slightly tingling in the nose; a few hairy breezes from the sea
    • Taste
      Brine, light smoke, wild nature
    • Finish
      smoldering campfire on the palate, the throat filled with sprightly fruit and clear honey, some tar at the back; medium-length finish with saltiness and afterglowing ash
