Bowmore Legend

Sorry about this...

We can't actually ship Bowmore Legend to the United States at the moment (although we're working hard to fix that).

In the meantime, our friends over at The Whisky Shop might be able to help you out.

Thank you for your support and understanding 🙂

Bowmore Legend Bottling Note

A young, rather gentle Bowmore. Whilst not massively complex or full-bodied, Legend is still a great value for money malt.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Gentle peat smoke, a little barley, touch of the coast.

Palate: Gentle, a one dimensional malt with a vibrant youthfulness, lots of pep, but not too much in the way of complexity. But if you like younger, sweeter Bowmore then you'll enjoy this.

Finish: Good malty sweetness, maritime, a touch of pine.

Bowmore Legend Reviews

Nice introduction to Islays. Mild peaty, smoky with light flavours and citrus notes.

Quietly peaty and smoky with a taste of the sea. Not as medicinal as the stronger older Islays but pleasant enough. A good introduction to Islays with nice citrus after tastes.

Very good

One of the best

Nope, undrinkable.

Having had a bottle of this and a Glenlivet Founders Reserve sitting on the desk for ages I said to myself "that Bowmore looks a little unloved, maybe i should have a tipple".

As it passed my lips i INSTANTLY remembered why the Glenlivet was nearly finished and the Bowmore was barely touched. I'm 100% convinced that all the positive reviews come from smokers because there's only one thing this reminded me of: kissing a pack a day smoker.

I like a little smoke in my scotch but this was like mixing cheap scotch with ashtray dregs and drinking it.

Impressive, but the 10 is a little better in my opinion.

Not impressive, taste like a mistake

a bit rough around the edges

It's... Just OK. Pleasant enough on the palate and a definite step up from blended malts, but I was hoping for something more complex maybe approaching a springbank or an ardbeg.

Maybe I'm missing something...

Thought it tasted great. Certainly doesn't taste like Petrol as mentioned in a previous review, on the rocks or straight its pretty smooth, I'll definitely try some other Bowmore's.

I like the standard, buy-anywhere 12 year old so I thought I would experiment with another . This smelt like I was walking into a disinfected medical surgery. It tastes so smoky that I missed an other subtle flavours

This Could Be a Staple

Someone already mentioned, and indeed I agree this could easily be a staple for me. As a lover of Islay's I tried the Bowmore Darkest 15 year, and fell in love with it. This prompted me to give legend a try. Of course Legend doesn't have quite the depth as the more mature Islay Scotches, but for my money I'l drink it every day for under $35 U.S.

Dynamic, exciting and fun with a bit of lost potential. This is a whisky I could drink daily. For the price it is an absolute steal. Highly recommended if you enjoy a smokey drink.
