  1. Rosebank88 scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    A simple textured whisky. Very similar to the legend.
    • Nose
      Peaty, salty, fresh sea breeze, subliminal sherry sweets. Little complex.
    • Taste
      Soft and light in the body. Peaty, salty, sweet oak and fragrant smoke.
    • Finish
      Short and salty.

  2. The Macallan scored this whisky 78 points Connoisseur

    This one reminded me of the Bowmore Legend. However the 8 year old has slightly more character then the Bowmore Legend.

    N: Smokey, briny, some sherry notes and a gentle sweetness.

    P: Smoked malty flavors, fresh and young with a salty touch.

    F: Sweet, smokey start with a salty touch on the back.

    C: Quite nice this one. I came across this lovely Bowmore during an event. I will be not surprised it this one would be used in a cocktail as most of the young whiskies are used for.
