Characteristics of Bowmore 12 Years
Complex yet perfectly balanced, the Bowmore 12 Years Old reflects the raw essence of Bowmore - thrashing waves, windswept landscapes and generations of tradition. Bowmore 12 Years Old has received much critical acclaim; the late, great whisky writer Michael Jackson proclaimed it "remarkably long and complex".
Bowmore Distillery has stood on the shores of Loch Indaal, a sea loch that opens out into the Atlantic Ocean, since 1779. The distillery's proximity to the sea plays a vital role in shaping the final character of the distillery's spirit, which breathes in the salty sea air all the while it's maturing. It is the first of Islay's eight distilleries to have produced Single Malt whisky, in 1779. Now, as then, Bowmore is widely acknowledged to be among the finest and most perfectly balanced single malts in the world.
It's Bowmore's unique combination of the purest water from the Laggan River, floor-malted barley that has been carefully smoked in their peat-fired kiln, the finest oak casks left to mature in Bowmore's No. 1 Vaults, Islay's natural environment and a dedicated team of craftsmen that together create the perfect balance for which Bowmore is known and loved.
