Had a tasting with several friends last night and decided to give the Bowmore range a go. We tried the 12 Year Old first.
The nose is filled with peat (obviously), but also citrus and some honey. My friend suprised me a bit when he said he smelled fingerpaint... Diluted with a bit of water, I felt the nose became a lot more complex and impressive.
On the palate, it starts out smoky, but the citrus and cocoa come out to play pretty fast. Even a bit of dark chocolate.
The finish is dry but warm, medium of lenght.
I was pleasantly surprised by this dram. On to the 15 year old!
