Peated Single Malt
Ardmore // Highlands, Scotland
Ardmore distillery puts most of its production strength into its status as the chief component of Teacher's Highland Cream, a blended Scotch. However, Ardmore Highland single malts also can be found. This includes Ardmore Legacy, which originally replaced the distillery's Traditional Cask. As opposed to the whisky it replaced -- which is also set to return as Ardmore Tradition -- Legacy is chill filtered and was released at a lighter strength, 80 proof as opposed to 92 proof.
Peated Single Malt100% malted barley from a single distillery. Dried with peat.
"Ardmore Legacy offers a honeyed, floral nose, with hay, and blackcurrant bud. The palate is dry but buttery, with malt, biscuit, toffee and nuttiness. The finish is warm and without burn, offering more honey, along with oak and earthiness. Add an ice cube and find an even drier palate, dominated by hay, honey, grass and oak, and a finishing note of malty sweetness. "
