    It's an okay whisky. Not a complex whisky. More of a daily dram than a tasting experience dram. Nice peat but rather smooth. Some oak and some spices. Too bad it is "farven justered med karamel"............

    Proof that a good whisky does not have to be expensive.

    Subtle smokyness and peatyness; lemon, honey and salt, with gentle spicyness with typical Islay smokey peatness. I still prefer the Bowmore Enigma thought ...

    Very nice and balanced whisky. I love the peat note on this one. Very subtle but of evolving nature.

    Very nice whisky at a very reasonable price! Preferred this one to the standard 12 year old which I found a little bit harsh!

    At this price point (I paid 26.99), Bowmore Legend is far better than I had any right to expect it would be. The peat comes through nicely and powerfully, but does so surrounded by a bouquet of sweetness. What a fun and fascinating dram. Far more complex than its price tag and just my style of single malt.

    My favourite Whisky in this price range. You have to pay a lot more for better.

    Excellent single malt from Islay. Yes, some will claim that this is not as great as some of the more expensive expressions but that to me is just an opinion, not a fact. I've had older and more expensive malts before but overall, I like this one better. For the money, this is the best single malt around.

    Que mejor nota de cata que la de un amante del whisky. Desde Costa Rica apreciamos el laborioso y gran trabajo de esta destilería y en general de los grandes y deliciosos estilos de whisky que produce esa tierra preciosa, Escocia. Gente linda!!! Saludos. @intergoumet

    Young, but still got that nice smoky "scotchness". Where else can you get that at this price?

  • Wyatt 29 June 2011

    This was the first scotch I ever purchased about 5 years ago based on the advice of a Swedish friend. I still love it for it's simplicity - strong peat, smoke, saltiness and a spiciness. A little water gives it a creamier mouth feel, and helps to bring out some flavors. Definitely not the best, but a go-to for me when I don't feel like getting into the top shelf stuff. At $30 a bottle here the price is right. You never forget your first.

    I found is a bit too sweet. and definitely too easy going... not that tasty as I expected

  • PR 16 March 2011

    WOW. On my first bottle of this and WOW. Lovely peat, salt and citrus. Plus at 40% it's very clean and easy drinking. Really, really love it.

  • SDShack 2 February 2011

    This is my favorite scotch for the money. A wonderful smooth smokey flavor, like a fine cigar without lighting up. This is definately the scotch you should try to get an introduction to Islay brands.

  • Cornish Jon 14 January 2011

    Single mount legend is probably the best whisky in its price range - fantastically smooth

  • Robert Ingram, Troon,25 December 2010. 25 December 2010

    An absolutely delicious whiskey that comes in a well designed bottle in an attractive container.I do believe this dram deserves the title "Legend".Just wait until its reputation spreads.I bought 4 bottles to see me through the festive period but I may need to buy some more!

  • rwbenjey 22 December 2010

    Certainly not the best Islay, but--especially for the price--not the worst. I like it better than Bunnahabhain, which is twice the cost.
