    Tasting Notes by Adelphi;

    1 of only 271 bottles from cask 4799

    Aultmore Distillery is situated between Keith and the Moray Firth, quite a long way from Speyside proper, although it produces a typical Speyside malt, with a high reputation among blenders, who rank it 'Top Class'. This is drawn from a first-fill ex-bourbon hogshead, and has a deep amber hue, although the wood has not dominated the spirit character. The nose is as clean as fresh washing blowing on a clothes line, with only slight nose-prickle, and a zesty scent, reminiscent of grapefruit or orange peel. Water softens and opens it, bringing up familiar Speyside pear-drops and adding heather pollen and gorse flowers: still fresh and summery. Visions of Laura Ashley frocks! The flavour is very sweet, soft and rounded, with a pleasant thick texture. Some honey and gorse, with a medium length finish and light coconut in the aftertaste.
