Bowmore 12 Year Old
This dram was tasted as part of the 12 Drams of Xmas series
Day 10 came all the way from the Netherlands and Femke Tijtsma Sijtsma (@Girl_Whisky) from the WhiskyGirl blog
This one threw me and i was surprised to find it was the lovely Bowmore 12 Year Old. I didnt get the peaty, meaty notes i normally expect from Bowmore although thinking back to the last time i had Bowmore 12 it was a similar shock at not being as peaty as i was expecting.
My guess for this was based as much on it being from Femke than anything else as i went for the Swedish whisky Mackmyra
quite subtle but has a spicy, peppery note, malty and cerealy, a touch of malt loaf
quite woody and peppery, in fact hugely peppery and spicy, lovely stuff
a touch of smoke and a lick of peppery spice
