    More than 2 years after release these are still on the shelves. That should not take much longer, since the quality might have gone up a notch from it's time in the bottle, and it does bring a big load of typical bowmore citrus zest and smoke. For a now very good price, considering the price changes from the past years for a 12yo Islay peated Scotch. 89 points in my book, that's more then okay for an 85 euro islay malt. Supports water well! 

    funny detail, I remember I liked it already in 2013, but thought the price was a bit too steep. Now, I didn't hesitate to buy more then one. Enjoy!

    Solid Bowmore, but I
    have had better. Around 90 EUR, which I find too much for what you get.
    • Nose
      I do not get the
      typical citrus from the get-go on the nose. It starts off quite malty and
      reminds me a bit of white bread. The crust, mostly. Or breadcrumbs. On the
      second wave it get some sweetness in the shape of vanilla and a salty edge, undoubtedly
      from the peat. There is a bit of smoke, but mostly I am reminded of breakfast
      pastry. After five minutes I even get some stable scents. I would call this an
      atypical nose.
    • Taste
      It is quite oily and
      soft on the spices on the palate. A lot more spices than on the nose, but
      still. The peat now shows itself from the start and offers quite a bit of
      smoke, contrary to the nose. It even reminds me a bit of the new make.
      Immature, but nevertheless very good. Midpalate it becomes a touch bittersweet
      as if from grapefruit.
    • Finish
      The finish is long,
      warm and drying.
