An very interesting Aultmore since I’m quite inexperienced with this distillery. Curious what this offers me.
Great example of an evolving nose! Fresh tropical mix. Almost like that tropical multifruit juice you buy at the supermarket. Apricot and lychee. There’s a certain freshness that lies close to eucalyptus. After a while I get more darker flavors like gingerbread or spiced biscuit. Dough, freeze-dried herbs and wood resin. Multidimensional.
Sweet, oily and a wee dryness. Truckloads of vanilla and honeyed candy. Sweet red apples and quite some spiciness. Alcohol integration is right on the edge of being a bit annoying. Surprisingly restless for a 20yo. This is definitely a good swimmer and with a good amount of water this shows more of it’s potential. It doesn’t get there completely but more then enough to be quite enjoyable.
Medium length. A big swallow to process. Heavy stuff. Not something for the faint hearted out there. Quite some white pepper and dry oak. It tends to pull away a bit too tart which is a pitty.
Time, water and handwarmth work really rewarding here. Don’t write this of too quickly.
A nice fresh and spicy profile with enough flavours to discover behind it.
A distinct fresh spiciness with aniseed, laurel, menthol and resin. Also a distinct fruitiness: phisalis (Cape gooseberry), apple, mango peel and mandarin. Some hessian and an association of fresh laundry round it off.
On the front the're spices like coriander, ginger, peppermint, thyme and some hops (beer!). On the background peaches, apple, citrus oils, elderflower and vanilla. Breathes well, take your time with it!
Fresh garden herbs and laurel, some hay, lemon icing and fresh laundry. Becomes quite oaky and dry after a while.
In general, smooth, not outstanding Molot. The fragrance is 15 years old. There is a flaw in taste - a simple inexpressive, ordinary taste of bourbon mole. The aftertaste is short with hints of wax. 84
