The Ardmore Legacy

(70cl, 40%)

The Ardmore Legacy

Sorry about this...

We can't actually ship The Ardmore Legacy to you in United States at the moment. We're working on a solution.

The Ardmore Legacy Bottling Note

Released in 2014 to take the place of the Ardmore Traditional, the Legacy brings a lightly-peated, wood spice-led flavour profile to the table. At its core, the Ardmore Legacy is made with 80% peated and 20% unpeated malt.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: It leans more on the savoury than the sweet side of things, with light barbecue char and earthy notes up-front. Sweet cinnamon, fresh honey and vanilla toffee waft up at points.

Palate: More charred, smoky notes, joined by drying oak, pear drops and subtle grassy touches. Give it a minute for citrus zest and expressive heather to appear.

Finish: A lasting peat smoke finish, with a little bit of honey'd barley for good measure.

Ardmore Legacy Reviews


Taste like choline chemical wash.

Excellant buy at £30

I gave been drinking Wiskies for over 46 years, this is very very good. A little peaty but nowhere near as harsh as Laphroaig which is extremely clinical in my opinion. This is an extremely smooth easy to drink tipple. It comes very close to a long since consumed bottle of 12 year Tormore from 30years ago which I'd happily pay good money for today. Whilst not a true single malt it rates as a highly commended desirable addition to my Whisky cellar.

Worth a. Try ( or 2).

Very nice smoke cinnamon but not pushy, love it.

Great value for price. A lot of unfair reviews IMO

This was bought for me as a Christmas gift. As with any new whiskeys that I haven’t tried before, I refrain from reading the reviews on here before I’ve sampled it. I’ve given it four stars for value if you can get it at £20.

Smokey, peaty. Has a slight caramel taste. Honey too. TCP? 100% lol but that’s why I love laphroig. Not the most complex of drams but certainly not bad at all.

Nice, but not for everyone

There is a definite medicinal twang to this whisky, which is not for everyone, but I like it. I find this a very nice peated compromise between the overly-smooth Laphroaig and the undrinkable (in my questionable opinion) Lagavulin.

I received a bottle as a present and before I sampled it I read reviews and was surprised to see so many negative comments,I would understand if people have not experienced a peaty malt before that this would assault their taste buds but that is no reason to give a derogatory review because of their ignorance,I myself was taken aback by its heady aroma slightly peated but not enough to bring a rear to the eye of new comers to Islay malts,I think people who are not used to a peaty malt should not comment on this brew as their taste buds no not of this style of whisky,I say well done and it is hard to find a better balanced dram for us who like a peatier malt

Oh dear.... This is truly the worst whiskey I have ever tasted. Stay away.....

I love whiskey, but this is not it.

Absolutely great value if you can get it around )20.

My sense of smell is poor, so I don’t ever get much nose, but I love this as a budget malt which I get for around £20. If you tip it off your tongue it starts as almost spring water then a gentle wave of peat and smoke drifts by. You end with quite a strong toffee flavour. It has become my everyday tipple, with a bottle of Lagavulin every couple of months to remind me that there are even better places to go!

Ardmore are letting themselves down here.

I think this is pitched as the most basic Ardmore offering given that it is regularly on offer at £18 in the supermarkets. It is young and harsh but drinkable especially if you haver nothing better on hand . I love the Tradition and the Traditional Peated but I think Ardmore have let themselves down here. I mix it with Teachers HC and it's not too bad.

Not good

Awful - Tastes of germolene.
Wish I’d have saved my money and bought Grants - at least I could have drunk it.
