Legacy is a mix of 80% peated malt and 20% unpeated malt – full-bodied, with a dry and spicy finish.
From the website
The Ardmore distillery has been distilling the finest highland malt whisky since 1898 and whilst the world has moved on little has changed up here.
The magnificent Scottish Golden eagle is still found riding the warm thermals above the distillery. For us they represent a symbol of our adherence to the traditional ways. These ways have ensured a distinctive taste that is full and rich, with unique and rare highland peat-smoke tones, followed by a smooth, subtle sweetness.
We hope you enjoy savoring our ‘traditional cask’ single malt as much as we do making it.
Founded in 1898 by one of Scotland’s most famous whisky families. Ardmore Single Malt has a long commitment to quality. We have an unshakable belief in traditional distilling methods and insist that Ardmore Legacy uses the aromatic smoke from natural, Highland peat fires to dry our malted barley.
The Ardmore Legacy continues the distillery’s history of producing the only traditionally peated Highland single malt whisky and will replace Ardmore Traditional Cask as its core expression.
A lightly peated, sweet dram, The Ardmore Legacy offers the ideal introduction to peated single malts. Combining notes of creamy vanilla, smoky charcoal, sweet honey and savoury spices with a pleasant smoky taste, The Ardmore Legacy is a full-bodied and smooth dram with the typical Ardmore dry, spicy and long-lasting finish.
