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

Give it time

Not too of the line of course, but give this one time. As I went down the bottle its light peatiness went down very well. I add a small amount of water and prefer it that way. Pleasant.

Love or hate

Primary flavours for me are the smoke/peat and honey. The pear is there. The citrus/oak? Not so much. For the on price, its 110% worth the buy. Would avoid if your not a fan of smokey ones, its clear from the other reviews the smoke can be a little overbearing.

It is awful - far too much peat smoke

This is definitely the worst single malt that I have ever purchased. It is described as having a lasting peat smoke finish, and this is certainly true, an empty glass (after pouring the contents down the kitchen sink), fills the room with the noxious fumes of a bonfire. The nose is smoke, smoke, and more smoke, with no hint of the cinnamon, fresh honey, or vanilla toffee, and the palate is again overpowering smoke, no pear drops, but maybe the grassiness tones are an imaginative component of the bonfire!! There is no subtle flavour to this malt.

Good bargain malt whisky for £20.

Definitely get the smokey barbecue notes with a light hints of peat . Also oaky finish which lingers on the palate to produce pear and citrus finish .

World class whisky.

Nicest whisky I've ever tasted. Perfectly smoked peatednesson the palate. For the price it's an absolute bargain.

Great for the price, worth considerable more

A mixture of subtle peat, smoke and overtones of banofee and vanilla. Surprisingly good for the price and a great introduction to pester drams

When having a brad variety of whisky , the Ardmore makes a great Whisky to savored from time to time. with the sweet smokyness and a taste that last and asks for more. I am very pleased with this very affordable single malt .

Too smoky

Smoke strength is above stated even with water or a stronger mixer. Nice flavours when drank longer in a tall glass, however smoke still shines strongly.
