Bowmore 12 yo, 40 %

Review #272
Here we got the basic 12 year old Bowmore from the core range. It has caramel in it, and by the looks of it, it is also chill filtered. Sweet and salty Islay peat in the smell. Some citrusy notes as well and the sweetness gets more and more honey-like.

It is light peated and full of lemon in the taste. Some vanilla and caramel as well. Not much else is going on, and nothing new comes to mind in the finish. You are left behind with some sweet citrus and peat, and just a hint of ashes.

The finish is my favorite part, and with just a bit higher ABV it could have been great. It reminds me a bit about Bowmore Legend with all that lemon, just a tad older. I will give this 82/100 (20/20/21/21).
