2011 The Whisky Cellar Private Cellars Selection Aultmore 9 Year Old Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (700ml)
Matured in a single European oak first-fill ex-Sherry butt, the aromas open oily, developing malt extract with vanilla wafer and milk chocolate. A typically bold Aultmore with a big, mouthfilling attack, the spirit heat balanced by a sumptuous malty middle where a plethora of dried fruits, mixed peel and cinnamon burst on the tongue. Moist fruit cake through the finish. A simple, heartwarming and satisfying sherried style. 739 bottles available. 57.1% Alc./Vol. Non chill filtered.
Notes from the bottlers... Expect a nose of creamy mocha, barley sugar and dark fruits with butterscotch. The palate is full of roasted arabica coffee beans with condensed milk, raisings and peanut brittle. The finish is mouth-filling and sweet with a soft creamy texture.
