This Aultmore was bottled for the 2017 Bottle Market show in Bremen, Germany. According to what I can find, it was distilled in 2007 and finished in a sherry cask.
Colour: Mahongany with a red hue.
Nose: Red fruits dominate, I’m thinking cherries, plums, raisins,… hints of furniture polish and a slight nuttiness. The sherry influence definitely comes through here.
Palate: Quite sweet with notes of candy (those little cola gummies) and toffee. Also leather, spice and all things nice. Rounded of by a hint of pepper.
Finish: The fruit comes through more here as opposed to the palate. A medium long finish with some tannins at the tail end.
For being finished in a sherry cask, it either had to be a very active cask or quite a long finish. It’s simple in what it does, a sherry bomb, but it does it oh so well.
Thanks Brecht for the sample!
