Aultmore 12YO is a good initial malt. It’s an enough sweet with pear note, with strong notes of wood and cereal, with spices. The palate appears with sweet pear note, and goes with grass, wood, black pepper, hay notes. The finish is a middle, spicy and dry with green pears note. It’s a quiet good for drink with friends during patties.

Nose: floral and slighty vegetal, fruity with fresh pears and apples, butter. Water and breathing time brings out some roasted almonds.

Taste: light but not a thin mouthfeel, a fresh fruitiness of pear and ripe galia melon, some vegetal oiliness and black pepper.

Finish: buttery and nutty and with a spiciness of black pepper and bitter white grapes.

A real nice entry level Aultmore, fairly priced considering quality and presentation of what's in the bottle.

Nose

Ganz am Anfang etwas ätherisch und kühlend. Dann aber angenehm süß. Vanille und Karamell. Birne. Mit der Zeit wird er würziger und zeigt sogar schon in der Nase etwas Eiche.

Taste

Angenehm und mild auf der Zunge. Aber überraschend würzig. Schon deutliche Eichennoten. Dazu etwas Malz und Karamell. 

Finish

Mittellang. Würzig und wärmend.

Die Malzsüße ist recht angenehm aber die Fruchtkomponente kommt etwas zu kurz. Alles in allem viel zu aromatisch und etwas zu fasslastig - 08.04.2017
