When it was found that the cask was leaking badly, Firkin's bottled this as matter of urgency - ready or not. As you could imagine, the out-turn was pitiful. A follow up to Firkin's Aultmore Tawny release, this Marsala cask packs in the flavour with loads of rich malt enveloped in a layer of kitchen spices, dried fruits and Marsala-soaked oak. 48.9% Alc./Vol.

Alexander Edward founded Aultmore in 1895 and was one of the pioneer distillers of his generation. Born into a family of distillers (his father ran Benrinnes), fog and low mist frequently cloak Aultmore, hence the site was once a centre for illicit distilling. Nowadays, most output is devoted to Dewers blended whisky, though official age statements are now on the market.
