Aultmore is a whisky, that doesn’t often get to my glass. There is no big reason for that, simply I don’t meet it too often. Generally, there aren’t many their products on the market.
Distillery is located in Keith, Banfshire, in Speyside. It was built in 1895. Typically, it was several times closed and opened.
I bought this bottle in Singapore, in the same shop as BenRiach 1988 Limited Release Generations Singapore Exclusive and Royal Brackla, 41% ABV. Like the last one it was bottled by Vom Fass.
N: at first slightly sweet with traces of caramel and toffee, malty, then quite vegetable with rhubarb, further hay, dry grass, ginger, fruit compote with plums, cherries and sweet cherries, hard candy, jelly beans Haribo, interesting smell;
T: oily, slightly warming, sweet, with a hint of orange, then I have a touch of wood, cardamom, ginger and quite a lot of bitterness, with time elements of wood with bitterness are intensifying;
F: long with bitterness and traces of wood.
Aultmore 29 years old has a very interesting smell, especially I like hard candies and jelly beans Haribo in it. The taste is a little behind and isn’t fully adequate to the nose. There is a bit too much of ginger and wood, but on the other hand we have 29 years in a barrel.
