  1. MaltMartin scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    I like the nose, but the palate is a little thin to my taste. The finish is too bitter. I would have expected more depth in a 21 yo whisky.
    • Nose
      Unexpectedly fresh and grassy for a 21 year old. Lemon curd. A bit honey. Lavender and heather. Flowery notes of freesias as well.
    • Taste
      Toasted oak with a peppery punch. Followed by vanilla and ginger. Cedar wood at the background. The influence of the bourbon casks is clear, but it lacks character in my view..
    • Finish
      Not that long. A lot of bitterness. Stuffed peppers and nutmeg. Liquorice

  2. craide scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Similar to the 18, I find this one a little undervalued here. Great flavors and nicely balanced.
    • Nose
      88 88
      fruity, sweet, summery fresh, honey with lemon zest and fresh hay, plus malt with vanilla and caramel, which brings with it a kind of sweetness reminiscent of coconut (something different), a few herbs such as lavender / rosemary,
    • Taste
      88 88
      Here, too, the fruit component is the first to stand out, juicy fresh oranges, plums and apricots, slightly acidic accompanied by the lemon / grapefruit, vanilla comes with a slightly chili-spicy oak note. Spicy-malty, everything always framed by a herb and spice note typical of Aultmore.
    • Finish
      87 87
      medium-long finish, slightly bitter with milk chocolate and sweet caramel,

  3. Norrwind26 scored this whisky 87 points Expert Junior

    Interesting nose, taste a bit monotonous. The finish remains in the mouth as a light note ...
    • Nose
      89 89
      Very spicy. A lot of carnation with a sweetness that rounds off the nose. No sugar sweetness, rather agave syrup. Something juniper in the back. Maggi?
    • Taste
      86 86
      Malty, vanilla, cereals. Not a sweetie. Grassy. Slightly bitter.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Enjoyable. Vanilla and wood notes remain a bit ...

  5. penumbra scored this whisky 76 points Expert Senior

    Unexpectedly easy-to-drink, you can drink it effortlessly and make people feel very happy without any burden. If it is not a certain barrel taste, it is impossible to speculate that it is 21 years of wine. All kinds of flavors are very clear, and there is no messy flavor, just like crafts that have been carefully polished.
    • Nose
      Fruity, flowers and spicy.
    • Taste
      Jam, wooden barrel, blueberry or citrus flavored cheese.
    • Finish
      general.

  6. de Geest scored this whisky 89 points Expert Junior

    Has a spring-like appearance in open wooded surroundings. With one sweetie.

    Sharp edge, after which soft, greasy and fruity.

    Subtle yet rich aftertaste

  9. ctu scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Young nose, spicy / sweet taste and bitter finish. Billowy. Price is not too friendly, however it's an interesting drink.
    • Nose
      87 87
      Fresh and floral. Vanilla, honey, citruses, oak and yellow fruits. Touch of grass.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Powerful and oily. Big oak with vanilla. Spices: pepper, ginger and nutmeg. Mixed fruit jam and citruses.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Medium length, bittersweet.

  10. Macheye did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Solid, well made and balanced, the Aultmore 21 year old is probably not going to win any awards for complexity, but is entirely pleasant nonethless. It's also fairly expensive, clocking at at £175 at an airport near you. At that price, unfortunately I really can't recommend it as a bottle purchase - however, if you get a chance to try a dram somewhere it's certainly worth 20 minutes of your time.
