  1. DerDennis! scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    On the nose it is still very interesting, but it drops sharply in taste and finish. I think a few more percent alcohol would have made sense here.

  2. Syleo scored this whisky 66 points Expert Senior

    Overall, this Aultmore looks extremely young and together with the 46% does not make a convincing impression, especially because despite the low strength, a clear sharpness and acidity impair the enjoyment.
    • Nose
      74 74
      Light straw forms thick drops from a thick rim of liquid on the glass wall. An intense, almost artificial-looking mentholic freshness rises into the nose, at the beginning almost a real bite, but which calms down quickly and then levels off between the tangy freshness of a white wine spritzer and the creamy sweetness of eggnog or cold vanilla pudding with shot and whipped cream. Grapes but also a little floury pear and spicy fruit notes such as that of a fresh fig are added, while a slight alcoholic tinge remains perceptible. The sweetness and fruitiness combine quite well, as in the white and orange wine gums, before linseed oil, dry autumn leaves and Weetabix gradually add a heartier side. However, you shouldn't leave this malt in the air for too long, then unfortunately it increasingly loses its fragile balance and noticeably dulls into dull notes of stale ale, old walnuts and cold coffee grounds.
    • Taste
      63 63
      Almost watery at the first sip, the next moment a strong spiciness unfolds in the entire oral cavity. The bitterness of black tea, corn flakes, mineral lime and coffee grounds give a rendezvous with shy grapes, gooseberries and sparkling wine spritzer, a pinch of vanilla and a spoonful of hazelnut ice cream, perhaps. All in all, unfortunately, quite expressionless, nothing really bad, but almost unpleasant in terms of sharpness.
    • Finish
      60 60
      The finish emphasizes malty and at the same time tart, becoming rather dry, first lemon grape sugar and then musty oak, vanilla pod, a hint of blossom honey and chalk, before only a few old pear peels remain at the end, which fade away quickly.
