The Ardmore Legacy

  • Age: No age statement
  • ABV 40% 
  • Bottle size: 70 cl
  • Price: £30
  • Nose 20 /25 - Vanilla, honey and a hint of marshmallow.  Gentle toffee apple and very light smokey notes.
  • Taste 19 /25 - Pear and citrus and possibly a hint of custard cream
  • Finish 18 /25 - it’s lightly smokey and extremely short but and frankly it seems a little on the young side.
  • Balance 21 /25 - you’ll not scare anyone off peat with this dram but really I doubt you’d really convince anyone that it makes a big difference.
  • Total 78 /100

Emerging from the village of Kennethmont in Aberdeenshire the Ardmore Legacy is bottled at 40% and is chill filtered. It’s made up of with 80% peated and 20% unpeated malt.  It’s a pleasant dram, light and easy to drink. I’d say it’s fairly unremarkable but inoffensive.
