This Bowmore Legend did not get an age stetement, but the resounding name 'Legend' makes your expectations rise. But to no avail, I'm afraid.
You would expect some peat, obviously, cause this is Islay after all, but I also smell smoked ham, rubber, wet carton boxes and even a horse's tail.
It has a nice mouthfeel and is rather oily, tasting of peat with a sweet lining, but he's not as complex as you might expect from a Bowmore.
While the finish is spicy, it's also rather short.
This Legend is most likely rather young, not fully developed and hence unfulfilling. It's a rather common whisky, so I would say 'fairy tale' instead of 'legend'.
