First post here from a newbie in Canada. Well, actually I have three years under my belt but that's nothing compared to most scotch lovers out there I'm sure.
Anyway, this might be a dumb question but seeing as the price of Bowmore 12 yo single malt is $3.00 cheaper than JW Black Label here in my province of New Brunswick, it would seem that the Bowmore 12 is a better deal, it's actually one of the lowest priced 12 year old single malt scotches available to us. I guess that it isn't a great seller here or something.
I remember buying this three years ago just as I was getting into scotch whisky and it was actually my second purchase, the first one being GlenLivet 12. But at that time, being a total newbie, the smoky/peaty flavour profile was pretty unsettling let's just say, I really didn't like it, LOL But since then, I've had Compass Box Peat Monster and Ardbeg 10 and have come to appreciate it better than before.
I should mention that taxes on liquor are through the roof here!!! Getting worse year after year, if it keeps up we will have a hard time buying any scotch at this rate.
So if it was you that was shopping for a bottle, would you rate the Bowmore 12 higher than the JW Black Label, especially considering that the Bowmore 12 is $3.00 less than the Black Label?
So yeah, I think I will just the old Bowmore 12 another chance since I should be better able to enjoy it this time around, it probably wasn't the best choice for my first bottle three years ago.
