As a price point
Bowmore Legend ~$16
McClelland's Islay ~$23
The prices I also found odd, as I thought the name Bowmore would earn more respect than McClelland's which is a new label selling whisky from different distilleries under the same name, but isn't really an independant botteler.
The McClelland's Islay is a 5 year Bowmore, and I believe that the Legend is around 8 years. I have tasted both back to back and the Legend is the better of the two. The McClelland's Islay is a little bitter and astringent, the Legend has more of the Bowmore smoke. They are both a little one-dimentional in my opinion.
