  1. grinface scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Feels very clean most of the time. Strongly driven by the distillate, as they say. I haven't had enough Aultmore to say so, but this could be an archetypal bottling. Full review (german): https://keinehalbendrinks.de/2020/09/01/mehr-speyside-im-glas/

    N: On the cleaner end of the spectrum, this needs some opening time.
    T: The age is bordering on ideal where the benefits of age aren’t gained at the expense of vibrancy & youthfulness. A vibrant colourful yet gentle/picturesque fairground ride ensues, sip after lovely sip.
    F: All present & correct with a comforting hum.
    C: Good solid dram that will please many.

    Notes von der SMWS Website https://www.smws.com/a-fruity-perfumery

    "The nose unleashed an amalgamation of talcum powder, flower gardens and melon to provide a delightfully perfumed introduction. Then banana fused with overripe apples as the palate delivered fresh ginger with cloves and mace to give a refreshing appeal that hinted at peppermint. A few dashes of water suggested perfumed soap and pine needles with the sweet embrace of balsa wood. Vanilla cones followed alongside marshmallow and honeydew melon before dried grapefruit skin offered a tart balance. The finish became drier as walnuts came wrapped in dark chocolate and dusted with nutmeg and bergamot flowers."
