I'm fairly new to whisky and for the last year have been trying everything I can get my hands on. I really enjoyed the sweet peat of the Bowmore 12 and want to explore more whiskies with a similar taste profile.
Any recommendations for whiskies Bowmore or other which I could try?
I've picked up a Laphroaig QC and a Pulteney 12. Both very different from each other but with elements of the Bowmore taken in different directions. The Laphroaig is sweeter than I was expecting but still with a lot of peat, the Pulteney was a bit more refreshing with a great spiciness to it.

I'm glad you're enjoying the Old Pulteney. It surely is a very drinkable whisky!
In the case of Bowmore, though, you may want to keep an eye open for the Tempest 10 Year Old releases (currently, Batch No. IV). Bottled at cask strength after maturation in 1st-fill ex-Bourbon casks, Tempest offers up a lot of sweetness and vanilla-toffee to go along with the relatively subdued smokiness.
