single malt

Bowmore 12 Years is a single malt scotch whisky produced by Bowmore Distillery, located on the isle of Islay, Scotland. It is one of the most well-known and popular whiskies produced by the distillery. The whisky is made using barley that has been malted on-site, and is aged for a minimum of 12 years in a combination of American ex-bourbon barrels and Spanish ex-sherry casks, resulting in a complex and rich flavor profile. The whisky has a golden amber color, and on the nose, it offers notes of smoke, sea salt, and a hint of citrus. On the palate, the whisky is well-rounded, with flavours of honey, vanilla, and fruitcake, as well as a subtle smokiness. The finish is long and warming, with a hint of spice. The Bowmore 12 Years is a classic Islay whisky that is loved by many for its balance of sweet and smoky flavors, and is often considered a great introduction to Islay whisky for those who are new to the category.
