    Aultmore 25 Sherry Casks Whisky Trail 46% WID: 74432 (1 drop of water)

    Nose: rum raisins. Slight sulfur, somehow involved. Deep and heavy. Mint makes it easier again. Short alcohol approach after panning. Then leather comes to light. Roasting aromas are spreading. Now coffee. In the background is still moist tobacco for self-turner. The raisins are still there. Dried plums are added. Chocolate.
    After the first sip: raisins and mint chocolate. Caramel behind. Toffee.

    Taste: Immediately marzipan, the sulfur is to taste, from the beginning slightly bitter, sourish bread dough, fermented grapes, almonds, spices, nutmeg.

    Finish: Pepper, still slightly bitter spices, sulphured dried fruit (raisins and figs). Gunpowder, slightly sour on the tongue, pepper and spices still stick to the cheeks.

    Conclusion: My first Malt where I really taste a lot of marzipan. By sulfur and bitterness probably not for everyone, but I think it's great. I would have liked to try it in cask strength.

    Beautiful sherry old. Not superficially sweet, but rather sour. In the mouth it also reminds a little bit of red wine.
    I liked it.
    • Nose
      Just after pouring, surprisingly a freshness. Menthol tobacco. Then of course the sherry. Here are the fruits rather a bit sour berries. Not quite ripe blueberries and Jostabeeren. But they get more mature over time. Red wine cake with sour cherries. Behind it then forest honey and oak wort.
    • Taste
      Creamy at first and short sweet Aroniahonig. Then the sour berries take over the command again and it gets drier. The mouthfeel is reminiscent of a red wine. Then the oak that brings her tannins. In addition, seasoning.
    • Finish
      The vicious mouthfeel remains. The fruits are slowly coming to an end. Some blood orange comes through. In addition black tea.
