Bowmore Whiskey – Best Buy 27th October 2008
I have found another good buy, Bowmore Whiskey Legend a nice Islay Single Malt.
It was by sheer coincidence that I was once again perusing the shelves of Whisky in Linlithgow’s Sainsbury’s and I found that this store was selling a standard bottle ( 70cl ) of Bowmore Legend Whiskey for only £16.99 I think this is certainly a bargain.
Not only that I feel that this Malt is a good introduction to the Malts of Islay, it is not too peaty and is quite a gentle and smooth malt especially if taken with a little water.
The other thing that made this a bargain is that Sainsbury’s own label Islay Malt was also priced at £16.99 (this is not to say that Sainsbury’s own label is inferior in any way, as in the future Dougie and I will be doing a supermarket own label taste comparison test.
If any of you out there find any big bargains please let the Whisky boys know.
