    Aultmore 30y c1989 Single Cask Nation

    This Speyside malt was matured in a first fill Oloroso sherry butt, cask number 2459, yielding 465 bottles at 57.1% ABV for Single Cask Nation.

    30ml neat in a Glencairn, rested 30+ minutes.

    Nose: the back room of a candy shop. there's a lot going on and you can tell some of it has been here quite awhile. a wide range of sweet, ripe fruits, from strawberries and raspberries to melons, figs, and apricots. also a touch of mint and a little bit of sulfur? Or maybe not?

    Palate: heavy fig notes, and canned peaches. Old school sherry, like some bottle or cask that legitimately got lost in a cellar. Grape esters that are almost like Port wine. Belgian ale.

    Finish: Oak and spice; medium length

    This has a ton of character, and it's not the kind of character I'm used to seeing in something around this age, although it makes perfect sense somehow. The finish is not short, but I wish it were a touch longer, like someone was telling a fascinating story and then had to take a phone call. It'll keep me coming back for more, though. 92/100

    This cask bottling, distilled in June 1989, spent thirty years maturing in a 1st fill oloroso sherry butt. It was bottled at cask strength in November 2019 at 57.1% ABV. Cask #2459 yielded 465 bottles.

    Color: Sanguine Copper

    Nose: Heavy in stile with ever-present notes of penuche fudge with pecans, charred carrot cake, pickled walnuts, balsamic reduction, bruised strawberries, salted pralines, and black licorice

    Palate: Multi-dimensional on entry (oily, waxy, and earthy) with pickled walnuts and truffle oil, fresh cracked black peppercorns, scorched caramel, polished, old mahogany and dusty library books, red wax lips, cola syrup, flamed peppermint, hints of shoe polish, and warm applesauce

    Finish: Long and warming with abundant warm oak, ground nutmeg, roasted walnuts, and date rolls

    On the label: A rich, warming, and satisfying old-style Speyside whisky that presents abundant walnut notes from nose to palate to finish but look, too, for salted pralines, polished mahogany, ground nutmeg, and warm applesauce. A delightful pour.

    Recommended Retail Price: $375/bottle
