  2. Kantenmechaniker scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    I just enjoy it, not very complicated, but quite pleasant and a round thing.
    • Nose
      84 84
      cold smoke rises in the nose, but not too dominant, but as an equal companion, the very pronounced fruit flavors, these bring a fresh sweetness, candied pear, red apple, a hint of iodine, vanilla, malt
    • Taste
      82 82
      Oily, if a bit watery, sweet, fruity, again the sweet pear, then sparkling apple, slightly sour, the smoke is very restrained, if you look for it, you will also find here indicated violet notes, but nothing that would have to mention negative
    • Finish
      80 80
      behind the apple is clearly dominant, but also the smoke is clearer, ashen, fruit bowl, not too long

  4. Archer scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    A Bowmore entry from the old squad. Does not overwhelm anyone, but it is not one-dimensional.
    • Nose
      Sweet smoke, combined with a note of smoldering gum. Fresh hay and grated lemon. The note of scorched gums weakens over time, but is present for a long time.
    • Taste
      Creamy and soft onset, with not quite as fruity-sweet smoke, as it was found in the nose. Slightly salty with time. Milk chocolate is coming. Fresh bread dough.
    • Finish
      Slightly dry and ashen, but still fresh and fruity for a long time.

  6. Helgo scored this whisky 79 points Connoisseur

    More than lemons and some smoke I do not think so. Already easy to drink, but the body and depth are missing.

  7. ddertzaar did not rate this whisky Expert Junior

    A bit shallower compared to the surf, but still not a bad dram
    • Nose
      mild ashy smoke, the scent of a summer meadow, sweet, salty, light alcoholic notes, glue
    • Taste
      Sweet ash, maritime, salty, bitter and dry
    • Finish
      short to medium long, remaining unobtrusive ash, salty and subtly sweet

  8. ASWhisky scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    a good to drink soft Islay
    • Nose
      a smoky Islay nose
      with notes reminiscent of Bruichladdich
      fair sweets
      caramel
      Grain
      a breath of smoking cow dung in the background
      the sweetness is dominant
    • Taste
      very soft start
      first on the palate bright smoke
      in the beginning, the fair sweetness, then warm cereal, light notes
      Chocolate powder develops on the palate
      a soft bright and fresh whisky in the mouth
      floral note reminiscent of fresh carnations
    • Finish
      a light fresh finish shallow and pleasant

  9. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    For then 20-25 € a solid, mittelrauchiger beginner in the range. I like him. In the direct comparison Legend / Surf I find the surf a little more edgy, smoky, maritime, the legend is rounder, sweeter.
    • Nose
      mild smoke, light freshness (lemon? salt?), plus a beautiful cereal sweetness, hay, herbs, quite balanced for such a young pound
    • Taste
      smokier and less sweet than the nose suggests, dry, a little scratchy, here you notice the youth, ashes with a bitter sweetness
    • Finish
      medium-length, ash, a bit of plant bitterness and a slight tingle on the tongue

  10. malthead-sven scored this whisky 71 points Expert Senior

    a decent start into the world of Bowmore, though he still lacks the sherry influence
    • Nose
      Zitonig, slightly smoky, later comes through fresh fruit notes
    • Taste
      soft, with noticeable smoke
    • Finish
      somewhat metallic, becoming drier and medium long
