With less expensive Scotch, it usually seems like I have to sacrifice some aspect of the whisky− finish, integration, etc, − in order to purchase a bottle for under a certain price. This, happily, is not at all the case here. Bowmore's Legend has a robust nose of salt, iodine, toasted grain, caramel and banana chip. The malt comes to the fore on the palate, with a surprisingly rich middle (though it is still a lighter bodied spirit), and a lingering finish. The peat, while always evident, is comfortably woven into the whole. For what this costs? Wow! It soundly drubs the competition.
