Welcome back to The Cask! This is the second edition of The Cask and I welcome you back to review another fine whisky! If you missed the first edition of The Cask check it out here:

As I’m sure you noticed in the title we’ll be discussing Legacy Small Batch - Canadian Whisky. Join me for a trip to the great white north!

As we’ve probably all tried in the past, sometimes you wander into the Liquor Store and take a chance. You roll the dice. You pick a bottle from a distillery you’ve never heard of and take a shot (figuratively...and literally). You hope and pray that the bottle you just dropped some of your hard earned cash on will actually be good.

This is one of those gambles - and it paid off.

Price: $20.99 - Inexpensive!

This price point is fantastic. I feel it’s a really attainable level to get to. I know $40 and $60 bottles of whisky aren’t for everyone, and to be honest - most of the time they aren’t for me either! I feel with a price like this that Legacy Small Batch will be finding itself on my counter a lot more often.

Quality: Rocks Sipper - 2

If you remember from the last edition of The Cask, here’s the way I do the rankings, 1 being the best.

  1. Sipper
  2. Rocks Sipper
  3. Ice Sipper
  4. Mixer

I give Legacy Small Batch Canadian Whisky a Rocks Sipper - 2 ranking, which frankly at this price range is crazy. I really can’t believe it. All I can hope for is they don’t raise the price after they eventually find this review. It was great on ice as well, but I enjoyed the flavor so much I didn’t want to dilute it at all. Honestly, I can’t find many Whisky’s at this price point that are this good.

As you can see by the picture to the left I did my due diligence on the Legacy Small Batch, you know - just for you guys - the readers. (right....). This Legacy is a blended whisky, despite being a small batch, don’t confuse the two. Blended shouldn’t be seen as a negative, for example even the infinitely high ranked Johnnie Walker Blue Label is a blend! I tend to like blended Canadian and Irish, but single malt Scotch. Everyone’s taste is a bit different. For reference, the Teeling was also a blend, it is also a small batch.

I should take this time to say that Canadian Whisky is on the rise. Canadian distillers are starting to put a lot more effort into Whisky and they are all starting to churn out Vintage, Small Batches, and even Single Malts! I think we are starting to come into golden age of Canadian Whisky and I hope you all jump on the bandwagon with me.
