Bowmore 12yo miniature, 5cl, bottle has a place in many hearts as Islay's 'medium-peated' malt. The current 12 year old bottling is a welcome return to the classic Bowmores of the 1960s and '70s, with the emphasis on tropical fruit and smoke.
Nose: Orange zest, lemon slices and some hay before becoming rather floral, heather smoke now competing with the ash.
Palate: Lovely and rounded, honeyed even, initially. Vanilla, perfumed smoke and coastal elements develop.
Finish: Smoky and long. Sea spray, dry grass, a touch of ash and citrus.
