Tasting note: Bright deep gold colour with a pale straw hue. Opening impressions are not too dissimilar to the 15 Year Old bottling, however, 'Legacy' leans towards fruit peel aromatics in the form of orange marmalade which almost eclipses the aniseed / pine needle notes. The malt whisky seems better expressed too. The glycerous, silky entry is superseded by bracing spices and spirit warmth; mid palate is thick and luxurious showcasing a seamless integration of pine, clove and exotic honey flavours. Finishes medium dry with the warming spirit showing staying power. Subtle liquorice bullet aftertaste. The presence of the whisky is never completely lost in this edition. Just as well, as one suspects some serious material has formed the foundations. 46% Alc./Vol.
