— My favorite so far. Long, smoky finishes get me every time and this is the smoothest I have ever experienced. Definitely going to keep this one in my personal stock.

— Bowmore is certainly a treat. Nice with a peaty flavor and a smooth finish, it has become one of my favorites.

Strong smokey flavor almost to the point of overwhelming, but hints of caramel come through at the end
 
Matthew

A great intro to Islay that keeps you coming back. Soft peak smoke with salt, brine, chocolate & tropical fruit.

Nose: seaweed, kelp, smoke, leather, hint of ginger Taste: creosote, marine/salt/ocean spray, touch of cinnamon.

Floral, yet peaty. Nice palate. Smokier taste than nose. Finish is decently long, but not too long. Safe for newcomers for peat scotch.

Great price/quality factor. Better in everything than Ardmore Legacy, though they are quite similar.

Peaty, Smokey, finishing with some lemon honey aroma...

THE islay. Not strong peaty and specific flavour. It is like a Levis 501. It is suitable to whatever feelings and situations.

Anton,
If Irish and Scotch had a baby, this would be it. Smooth and honey for the Irish side with a tad of smoke from the Scotch. Very nice. Had the Dark and the 18 yr old, but I think this is the winner of the three.

A solid introductory scotch for those seeking to understand what Islay is all about.

Alex,
Bowmore is by far my favorite scotch distillery. I usually purchase the small batch whisky they produce as my regular drinking whisky. While I love the small batch, the 12 year absolutely blows it out of the water. This whisky is an absolute delight to sip and enjoy. Incredibly smooth, I will endeavor to keep a bottle around the house permanently.

Heather, brine, smoke, and light honey on the nose. Smoky honey sweetness in the palate with a long, warm, smoky finish. The honey sweetness balances with the smoke very well. Great introduction to Islay whiskies if you've never had one and are a little leery of the smoke.

Not for nothing, I LOVE Islay singles however, after being to many tastings, cigar events and the like, I have to admit Bowmore is by least favorite. Actually purchased a bottle, tried 1 sip and tossed the bottle out. For some reason never could enjoy Bowmore.

Great for the price in Trader Joe's at around 43 dollars a bottle

Smooth, peaty, sweet ansd salty. Not as heavy as many of the brothers from Islay, the balance and smoothness makes this a good one for this money.
