- Complex yet perfectly balanced, the 12 Year Old reflects the raw essence of Bowmore—thrashing waves, windswept landscapes and generations of tradition. We like to think of it as vanilla ice cream at a beach bonfire.
Founded in Islay in 1779, Bowmore is the home of the world's oldest Scotch maturation warehouse. A warm amber-colored whisky with subtle lemon and honey scent is balanced beautifully by Bowmore's trademark peaty smokiness. On the palette, sweet and delicious pools of heather honey and puffs of gentle peat smoke sharpened by lemon zest progress into a long, mellow finish. (from Bowmore)
