I've had an Aultmore distillery bottling but this blows it out of the water.
A lovely spring fresh fruity nose, golden delicious apple, banana, vanilla, white grape, melon and pear.
The smell of the Oak really shines through and there is confectionery and flowers of all kinds, it really is a delight.
The refill American and Sherry Hogshead work absolute wonders together here.
Again it's refreshing on the palate and a cocktail of fruit just burst into life.
The 46% vol is right on the money.
It goes down very easily.
You could drink this early in a spring morning in the middle of a meadow and guarantee to add a few points just for the experience.
This is so fruity even the slight burn enhances those flavours.
I don't want this to sound overly fruity because it's not, everything is just right including the little touches of spice.
A wonderful medium dried fruit finish almost like mango with dip. The freshness of the taste just continues on the finish leaving little to no dryness, just a pleasing coating of the mouth.
