12year old. 40% Proof. This product is also available as a miniature.
The village of Bowmore is the "capital" of Islay. The influence of the distillery is exhibited widely, even to the extent of having decorated pagodas on the local school. In geography & palate the whiskies of Bowmore lie between the intense malts of the south shore & the more mellow presentations of the northern end of the island.
The house style of Bowmore, exhibited first by the 12 year old, is of smoke & sea air. The body is light & syrupy & on the palate it presents a sherry sweetness & saltiness with spice & heather. As with all the Bowmores this is a very complex drink that develops as it warms in the glass.
