Bowmore Legend Review

Bowmore Legend So i'm really lucky and tomorrow night i'll be taking part in the #LoveBowmore Twitter Tasting which will feature three current expressions and one yet to be released expression from Bowmore. I'm really excited about it so thought it would be a good time to post the review of this little cracker.

I'd been doing some shopping in Sainsburys* and came across this on the shelf on discount so it was a must buy. With many places no longer stocking this dram as it has been discontinued its getting harder to get a hold of and really has been replaced by the Bowmore 12 Year Old.

Keep an eye out for the #LoveBowmore Twitter Tasting tomorrow and in the meantime why not pick up a bottle of this, or another Bowmore from The Whisky Exchange
