This is my first Bowmore. I went to the liquor shop several times with intension to buy Bowmore 12 but always ended up in buying something different. This time I was advised to try Legend instead of 12yo, so ok, I bought Bowmore Legend to start my experience with Bowmore from the beginning of their regular range.

Well, after trying it I have mixed feelings. In general I quite like the flavors it offers. I also admire it's softness for it's age (8yo?). There are barley sweetness, smoked bacon, some fruits. But they are not quite combined, so to say. It lacks some kind of a binding element (usualy these are spices, peppers?) to be complete. So, it lacks balance. Because of that it is not all that drinkable for my liking.

Nevertheless I give it quite high score for being good bang for the buck and nice entry soft Islay malt.

Will I like Bowmore 12yo more?
