Whisky Reviews for Aultmore 1982 AD

  1. GlenSikkes did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Tasting Notes by Adelphi;

    1 of only 236 bottles from cask no. 2221

    One of our favourite makes – top quality from a Top Class distillery. This one has matured in a refill bourbon hogshead. Vintage Moselle. Mid gold. Underripe bananas. Then the bananas ripen and become banana cheesecake. Sweet and syrupy. Dusty malt and green banana skins in the finish. After water, estery notes of warm polythene or vinyl. Faded dried mixed herbs and muesli. To taste, smooth, sweet with rolled-oats, medium length. The perfect breakfast whisky!

    I've had better Adelphi bottlings.
    • Nose
      A little restrained at first. Malty. Sweet barley. Some pear, apple and melon. Cardboardy. Herbal notes as well.
    • Taste
      Warm oily mouthfeel as usually with Adelphi bottlings. Citrus fruit intermingled with banana and pineapple. Quite a sharp spicy edge.
    • Finish
      Oaky. Bitterness and salt.

    No whisky for every day. It takes time. Does not open up immediately
    • Nose
      Nose: No smoke, wood (oak), oranges, not stinging despite the high alcohol content, floral, malt

      Nose with water: much floral, wood (oak) occurs
    • Taste
      Mouth: very strong onset, oily mouth feel Alcohol clearly noticeable, but not burning, moderately sweet, vanilla, wood, without intrusive bitterness, very spicy, The age is clearly rauszuschmecken
    • Finish
      Finish: very long, dry, wood, slight bitterness, oranges, bitter raisins
