Whisky Reviews for Aultmore 1990 DR

27 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.63 points

  1. Hobbit did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Well, with such a malt the expectations are high. You get what the outer appearance promises: a massive load of sherry with many old aromas and at the same time fruitiness and sweetness. Actually an absolutely brilliant malt, if only the sulfur would not be! He is not extremely pushy, but keeps me from buying a large bottle. For this price may (for me) be no false notes in it.
    • Nose
      much, much sherry, alcohol, sulfur, furniture polish, a few herbs, mint / menthol, milk chocolate, earth, forest soil, now more and more sweet partially fermented forest fruits (blueberries, blackberries, currants), old wet wood, strawberry jam, raisins, now getting sweeter. An extreme sherry freight and complexity has been put through the barrel on this whisky. A malt for hours sniffing. Now I've found what I was looking for: mulled wine! (Thanks, Gloin) The sulfur I hardly perceive towards the end. In the second nose again awesome sweeter and fruity
    • Taste
      Oak, full-bodied, dark chocolate, tingling, really creamy and "chewing", espresso, a lot of wood, sulfur, menthol, cinnamon, saliva, berries (jam), pleasantly sweet, again a strong aroma.
    • Finish
      old, a little bit of sulfur, bitter chocolate, delicious fruity-sweet oak, getting drier, sticks to the palate and lips, sherry, a few nuts in the background, coffee, medium-long

  2. Gloin scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    The whisky smells as dark as it looks, very intense and heavy. This impression continues seamlessly in the mouth and also the long finish adapts. I do not know what an Aultmore tastes like, but there seems to be little left of the original character. Here dominates the sherry barrel. The whisky is not yet over its zenith, but rather bottled at the right time.
    • Nose
      Loads of dark sherry pour from the glass, leather, raisins, rum, dark cocoa, mulled wine, cinnamon. Behind it old old-fashioned wood, furniture polish, old books.
    • Taste
      A velvety soft body with almost creamy consistency. The start is gentle, but then suddenly the whisky unfolds its power, ginger covered with very dark chocolate, bitter oak, kirsch, but also sweet hints, dark bittersweet forest honey, the association of pine resin
    • Finish
      Almost numbly, the tongue tingles, bitter oak sticks to the palate, weak raisins, bitter chocolate, black coffee, dry sherry, long

    Blind

    Aultmore was only really put on the market as single malt in 2014 when owner Dewar’s & Sons launched the so-called Last Great Malts series. Highlight of that series is a 25 years old. But today I find myself at my trusty desk with a sample of a 25 years old Aultmore from a sherry butt by Glasgow based independent bottler A.D. Rattray. It is very dark and bottled at almost 53%. My saliva glands go into overdrive just by looking at the glass.

    OMG, a grand nose. Dark sherry notes with leather, rum, furniture polish and lots of cinnamon. Butter in the frying pan, orangettes, dades and fresh figs. A stew of dark fruit, actually. But I must add that there is little left to remind me of the distillery character of Aultmore (on the other hand, this is only my 11th encounter with this Speysider). This malt, when nosing blind, could easily be mistaken for an exceptional sherry.

    The arrival is both creamy and piquant. My mouth is on fire! Creamy and spicy on ginger, lots of wood spices (with a rather big bitterness) and some resin. The malt struggles to show its fruity side, but from the second sip forward, when the taste buds have accustomed to the high ABV, the dark notes shine. Again dark fruit and chocolate, upholstered with candied orange peel and cherry liqueur. I am in heaven!

    The finish is very long, warm and spicy, but sweet at the same time. Nevertheless, it leaves the mouth parched. At the death, a nice hint of coffee grounds and rum raisins appears.

    Delicous sherry… err… single malt! Ah, when it’s this good, who gives a f*ck?

    Cherry jam, white plum, fig, dog rose, raisins, ripe apple, buckwheat honey, rusks, cake, black tea, bitter chocolate, caramel, condensed milk, bitter, burnt tree. Excellent balance!

  6. Gris scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    http://www.justanotherdram.com/en/tasting-notes/aultmore-25yo-a-d-rattray-2.html
    • Nose
      A maximum of sherry, heavy-loaded as they say (one of my neighbours is regulary heavy-loaded but in another way). Beautiful notes of plums, grapes, but also berries and cherries. It also smells (good) old leather and fresh nuts. Nice beginning!
    • Taste
      Wow, with its 52.6%, I certainly expected something relatively strong in the mouth but here too it’s quite heavy! The palate is saturated with strong aromas of sherry, walnuts wine, chocolate and tobacco. Plums and grapes bring a little sweetness in second mouth. You can add water to get it sweeter, leaving more place for the fruits. But personally I like it neat ;)
    • Finish
      Long and dry, on plums, nuts and tobacco.

  7. Gris scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    http://www.justanotherdram.com/notes/aultmore-25yo-a-d-rattray.html
    • Nose
      Un maximum de sherry, heavy-loaded comme on dit (ca passe mieux que lourdement chargé, comme peut l’être un proche voisin). De belles notes de prunes, de raisins mais aussi de fruits des bois et de cerises. Ca sent également bon le vieux cuir et les noix fraîches. Ca commence bien!
    • Taste
      Houlà, avec ses 52,6% je m’attendais certes à quelque chose de relativement fort en bouche mais là aussi ca envoie du lourd! La bouche est saturée de forts arômes de sherry, de vin de noix, de chocolat et de tabac. Les prunes et les raisins apportent un peu de douceur en seconde bouche. Vous pouvez ajouter de l’eau pour adoucir un peu tout ca en laissant d’avantage de place à son fruité. Mais personnellement je l’apprécie tel quel ;)
    • Finish
      Longue et sèche, sur les prunes, les noix et le tabac.

  8. pianoman scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Elegant, full. Nutty sherry, caramel, hazelnut. Raisins and some leather. Yellow plums, red apples, currants. Rotten wood, a little cinnamon, a hint of mint.
    • Taste
      Round, strong, spicy. Raspberry cake, strawberry jam, baked apple. Freshly ground pepper. Plum jam with a hint of cinnamon. A touch of beeswax, nougat, walnut and dark chocolate.

  10. axm scored this whisky 90 points Member Senior

    I liked the color very much. On the one hand - this is the color of a rich good cognac, the other day before yesterday's tea leaves. I really liked the "legs" - very thin, then in addition a small transparent droplet flows down this leg, and the legs themselves hold very long. A good and hard-boiled sherry monster. The aftertaste lasts forever.
    • Nose
      Thinner, apples
    • Taste
      Sweetness, astringency, very sharp alcoholic citrus component (with water does not go away)
    • Finish
      Tart, sherry, sweet
