Beautiful herbaceous and apricot notes precede notes of aromatic herbs (sage, vervain). camphoric camphoric Next, spices (black pepper, cinnamon) herald its evolution towards a more liquorice and camphorous register. “Cohesion” is the first word that comes to mind when trying to describe this Aultmore. Ripe fruits (apple, pear) elegantly punctuate its aromatic sequence.
- Palate : Balanced, dynamic. Echoes all or part of the aromatic palette as it pleases, adding coconut and more spices (fresh coriander, ginger). The midpalate is sumptuously vanilla-flavoured and herbaceous (moss, green barley). Candied citrus fruit draws out the palate with determination until the finish.
- Overall : Long, silky. Like biting into the skin of sweet white grapes, with praline and toffee notes bringing out its exquisite woodiness. With remarkable freshness, it throws open the towering doors of a malting floor. In the retro-nasal olfaction, toasted flavours penetrate deep into our gustatory memory. The empty glass releases honey (acacia), springtime flavours (lily of the valley) and roasted notes (tobacco).
- The brand
The brandSituated in the Speyside valley, the golden triangle of Scotland, the Aultmore distillery is renowned for the quality of its single malts. The distillery has had an eventful past. Following its creation in 1896, the distillery’s success enabled its founder Alexander Edward to develop the business by taking over the Oban distillery. The bankruptcy of their main customer Pattison Ltd slowed down production considerably until Prohibition in America and the Great Depression of the twenties put paid to Edward’s ambitions. The distillery was bought several times by a succession of groups, which enabled it to stay open throughout the two world wars. In 1970 the distillery closed for renovation work and was equipped with two additional stills that doubled its production. Owned by the Bacardi group since 1998 the Aultmore distillery is now back in the spotlight thanks to the increasing success of its single malts.
