Bowmore 12 Year Old Review

Bowmore 12 Year Old This dram was tasted as part of the 12 Drams of Xmas series

Day 10 came all the way from the Netherlands and Femke Tijtsma Sijtsma (@Girl_Whisky) from the WhiskyGirl blog

This one threw me and i was surprised to find it was the lovely Bowmore 12 Year Old. I didnt get the peaty, meaty notes i normally expect from Bowmore although thinking back to the last time i had Bowmore 12 it was a similar shock at not being as peaty as i was expecting.

My guess for this was based as much on it being from Femke than anything else as i went for the Swedish whisky Mackmyra

Tasting Notes & Details


quite subtle but has a spicy, peppery note, malty and cerealy, a touch of malt loaf


quite woody and peppery, in fact hugely peppery and spicy, lovely stuff


a touch of smoke and a lick of peppery spice
