Whisky Reviews for Aultmore 2002 SMWS 73.92

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.33 points

  1. Andytka3 scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    N- Best described by the given name on the label, waves of thick spiced rum, follow by apple liqueur soaked white raisin, and get more red apple coming thru as it developed, Irish coffee with clotted cream for layer of oiliness with whiff of sawdust.

    P- Dark rum sweet notes with canned apple juice, lemon and peaches. Subtle spice of clove, wood spiciness for the muscle, finely balanced.

    F- Medium, curry spices, peppery with sweet creamy coats.  Peppery apple pie.  An apple a day keeps the doctor away.— at The Whisky Bar, Kuala Lumpur.

  2. Nergal scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    SMWS tasting notes: Fruity aromas of apricots, plums and damsons to start with, followed by honeycomb ice cream and tarte tatin before sweet tobacco and a mild coconut based Thai curry arrived. The taste neat had thick fluffy pancakes topped with streaky smoky
    bacon and maple syrup beside a strong, slightly bitter, Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee. Adding a drop of water we collected apples in a wooden crate before we enjoyed a slice of crusty farmhouse bread with spiced quince apple compote. After 13
    years in an ex-bourbon barrel, we transferred this whisky directly into a custom made new oak barrel for the remainder of its
    maturation.
