Whisky Reviews for Aultmore 2006 WhB

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.85 points

  1. LittlePeat scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    Nose: sticky fino sherry, peach compote, mussels (where do they come from ?!), wood dust, fresh plums. The alcohol stings very little.

    Palate & finish: sparkles a lot at first, then the peaches come back; they are slowly turning into an old, set sherry, which remains medium to long.

    Conclusion: Even if the alcohol could be integrated a little better, this malt is extremely well balanced and even complex, clearly in the old sherry style. Above all, it is not arbitrary / interchangeable, but has character. Blind & diluted, I would have thought that it was an approximately 18-year-old standard with a proven barrel selection, which ensures a striking character. Or - not diluted - for a mega Gordon & Macphail Cask Strength. Unfortunately, awesome, unfortunately only a bottle, which I'm afraid doesn't have a long life ahead of it.

    Edit: On the second tasting, I also have subtle floral notes and rose hip jam in the background. I notice a little more wood on the palate than the first time. But I have to say: The nose is much better than the palate.

    Overall, a big advantage that it is a whisky and not a mixed wine drink. A little too much of the latter lately.

  3. Mascht scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    a good malt with a light fruity nose, dark fruity taste and strong finish
    • Nose
      88 88
      intensely fruity and spicy of honeydew melon, apricots, fresh rolls, coffee, roasted hazelnuts and mineral notes such as fine sand and a little salt
    • Taste
      88 88
      pleasantly mouth-filling, now the typical sherry character comes through, paired with a lot of oak, reminiscent of dried dates, raisins, cocoa powder, wet rind and nougat
    • Finish
      86 86
      long, there are dried fruits, lots of oak and a pinch of salt
