Bowmore 12 year old, 40%

Price: $52 Issue: Spring 2020 Reviewer: Gavin Smith

A great introduction to Bowmore's single malts, and one of the best 12 year old single malt scotches around. The nose offers tropical fruit, sweet smoke, a hint of brine, new leather, and floral notes. Peaches, honey, vanilla, and more full-on smoke on the rounded palate. Brine, cocoa powder, citrus fruits, and fading woodsmoke in the finish.
