Whisky Reviews for Aultmore 1997 MBa

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.50 points

  1. Syleo scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Again a nice selection of barrels from Martin at Maltbarn, so I like older ex-bourbon casks, fruity-vanilla-sweet combined with the increasingly intense tart note and never boring.
    • Nose
      90 90
      A beautifully aromatic ex-bourbon cask, vanilla pods mix with the juice of canned peaches, lychee and lemon juice, plus a few oatmeal, cocoa powder and a touch of nutmeg, now almost cold baked apple. In the background, however, the typical grassy Aultmore note with a moist summer meadow and heather honey is still present.
    • Taste
      89 89
      The taste is initially creamy and oily like peach juice from a can, a slight tingling despite the "only" 49.9%. Vanilla sugar turns into sweetened green tea and coffee grounds and becomes more bitter, grassier with straw on oak floorboards.
    • Finish
      88 88
      Dextrose, lemon zest and peach meat close to the core determine the finish, vanilla sugar and cocoa powder have a pleasantly sweet and tart sound.
