    • Nose
      84 84
      The influence of the oloroso barrels is clearly perceptible. The nose is slightly vinous, the tannins of the barrel bring a woody note to this whisky. A little too much perhaps because the aromas of red fruits remain too subtle and should have been highlighted.
    • Taste
      83 83
      Do not expect a "sherry bomb" as the mouth lacks explosiveness. The attack is smooth, with notes of honey, quince paste. The whisky reveals a little more aftertaste, with more fruity flavors (fruit cake).
    • Finish
      86 86
      The finish is surprisingly not so short and emphasizes the fresh side of the red fruits with very pleasant acidity (wild strawberries, raspberries, currants). The best aspect of this whisky.

    on first tasting this is quite Woody which is really surprising for such a young whisky.
    For me this promises a lot more than it delivers, this is far from exceptional but it is decent and certainly drinkable but worth no more than £40 in drinkers terms.

    My best whisky-discovery of 2020. A fantastic dram for the money.

    Very good value! Wonderful Sherry-taste. One of my best 11 years old whiskies.

  6. RJKrueger scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Beautifully balanced Aultmore with notes of sherry that are reminiscent of much older whiskys.
    • Nose
      86 86
      Typical sherry notes on the nose with cooked, slightly fermented fruits, lightly roasted almonds and cocoa.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Very creamy and harmonious in the mouth. One likes to play with him and no sharpness disturbs it.
    • Finish
      85 85
      A long finish that comes up very late with a little liquorice, which for me personally clouds the end a bit.

    Sample tested

    N : Spices, touch of chocolate and red fruit liqueur. Soft acidity and sweetness, like a green apple crumble. Feels balanced, with a touch of bitterness.

    M : soft and bitter, disappointingly light compared to the nose. 60-70% chocolate with a salty twist, bit of pepper and red fruits.

    F : On the sweeter side, a bit more spicy too. Ends with a pleasant saline touch.

    Edit a few months later, oxygenated : developped on the sherry side with more prominent bitter red fruits. Also something mentholy I didn't have first time. Definitely a good cask, not sure the juice inside was on par. 6/10
