The last ever Legacy, and we're certain Jim McEwan will have taken pains to ensure it goes out with a bang. A vatting of 1965, 1970 and 1972 vintages, bottled at a natural strength of 41%. Taste descriptors from the official press release are creamy vanilla, banana, apricot, crème caramel, marzipan, maple syrup, almonds, cinnamon, butterscotch, pear and mint.Tasting Notes (2)
Tasting Notes by John Hansell, Malt Advocate
The sixth and last bottling from the Legacy series. Legacy 6 is a marriage of six casks from 1965, 1970 and 1972. Soft and mellow on the nose and palate, with unbelievably restrained oak for such a mature whisky. Delicious notes of coconut, soothing vanilla, caramel custard and banana cream, peppererd with spice notes of cinnamon, mint and teaberry that emerge on a soft finish that fades out gently. A fitting end to the Legacy series. I'm sad to see them go. 94 points.
Producer's Tasting Notes
Bright polished mahogany.
Rich and unctuous. A gloriously voluptuous texture that compels your full attention, seducing your senses and pulling you into the glass.
Unbelievable......a vast galaxy of aromas that promise a glimpse of heaven - macaroons dipped in honey, the tang of fresh squeezed pineapple juice, popcorn, a pinch of cinnamon followed by the mellow oak, all buttery and vanillins. Any hint of smoke is long gone having been snuffed out by the wood, the sherry oak interlacing beautifully with the bourbon, each embracing the Malt and sheltering it from the wild Atlantic for decades to finally release its gold here in this glass.
This is the last of the Legacy series and what a legacy it is. The interplay between the sherry oak and the vanilla is just amazing, marshmallow soft, the mouthfeel is satin, like a snow flake melting on your tongue. Coconut milk, bread and butter pudding, nougat and custard roll gently over the palate. The flavours linger long and amen to that as you never want it to end! If this is testimony to Bruichladdich’s past then its future is in safe hands.
The angels have taken their share but have left what is truly an ambrosial legacy.
