Peat, smoke, earthy dominate this young Bowmore Islay, strong young alcohol gives way to peat, smokey malty grain goodness. Medium slow finish.

@PMessinger, I'm a big Islay scotch fan. The Bowmore Legend runs about $20 here, at that price I usually have some on hand. The legend is a decent scotch, what I like is that smoked bacon flavor. The McClelland's Islay is about two dollars more. How would you compare the two?

FYI I've seen the folks from Morrison Bowmore on record (I can't remember where, alas) saying that they do occasionally source casks for McClelland's, so it is not safe to assume that it is always from Bowmore, though, I think that is the most common distillery.
