Ardmore Legacy Highland Single Malt £20 @ Tesco

15
Found 21st May 2017
On offer at Tesco.
One of the 'no age' type whiskies but £20 for 70cl of single malt is a good deal for me.
Highland in origin, lightly peated and smoky, it's quite drinkable and not as heavy on the peat as a Laphroaig.

"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."

I don't understand all the negative reviews. It's peaty, not too harsh and easy to drink. Certainly not unpleasant and much better than a blended. Worth a punt at this price I think.
did you know how much sugar there is in booze?

every 4 drinks, you're eating a pizza

Does this still qualify as a single malt?

Does this still qualify as a single malt?



it does if it has been made at the same distillery - it's not a blend of grain & malt whiskies or or different single malts from more than one distillery

Think your getting calories and sugar contents mixed up my darling, theirs very little in the way of sugar in whisky to contribute towards the calories. By the way take your health warnings and preaching elsewhere, were not interested.

They were right about the pizza thing though. Most people don't realise how many calories there are in spirits

yep in all alcoholic drinks - the fact that Scotch can be drunk neat / with water doesn't change that much about its high calorific content

sure it's better than mixing a full fat mixer in with (say) gin

but all distilled spirits are effectively distilled from similar bases, ie something very sugary - and remain high calorie items after distillation even if the sugar flavour has disappeared
There's calories in alcohol, doesn't matter what type.

Whisky - A lot fewer calories than beer and cider. 50 odd calories per shot is quite low, only slightly higher than vodka.

Found this to be very peaty. Would not buy again.

wrong again
Bought a bottle at Chester le Street Tesco to try but it was £20.50 not £20.00
Too light for me and not that peaty
Will revert to Laphroig Quarter Cask and Aberlour Abundh when they come back down in price.
