Of all Islay distilleries, Bowmore is the oldest but arguably the most uninteresting. Its 12-year-old expression is intensely colored (E150a) and less peated than other Islay Single Malts. The nose is distinctly earthy with fresh vegetables, citrus fruits and an occasional alcoholic burn. A warming glow accompanies the arrival, while the peatiness is restrained and yet somewhat unique. Sweet spices, herbal notes and dried fruits lead to a rather dry finish with a touch of bitter chocolate. This whisky is certainly worth a try but lacking intrinsic quality.
