Aultmore 21 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky (700ml)

Speyside, Highlands, SCOTLAND
$299. 00 Bottle
$3588.00 Dozen
ABV: 46%
After a patchy history, Aultmore was sold to Bacardi subsidiary, Dewars, who offered the first ever official bottling in 2004. The house style has been described as "fragrant on the nose, substantial on the tongue." We find it typically spicy and fruity with most of the wood employed being American oak. Prized by blenders, try this and discover what all the fuss is about! Non chill filtered.

Other reviews... When you get a very decent spirit filled into exceptionally good casks, the result - providing the whisky is disgorged neither too late nor too early - is usually a positive one. The refill hoggies here must have been in fine fettle, for this is a bit of a stunner. No, make that a classic! Potential gong material, this. 95.5 points - Jim Murray's Whisky Bible 2021

Colour: pale gold. Nose: akin to the 18, we’re well in the same family, this has just a little more fresh butter and vanilla; plus perhaps a touch of ink. It seems that it is a slightly fatter offering, let’s see… Perhaps a little more mint as well? Mouth: more complex, that is to say fruitier this time. Rather towards oranges and citrons, then quinces. Also rhubarb and gooseberries, and the kind of fruity green tea (not flavoured tea mind you) that I quite enjoy. Just finished a pack of organic Taiwanese wulong that had these kinds of notes. I’m sad it’s empty. Finish: same, a fruitier 18. All for the (even) better if you ask me. Comments: just checking it against the 25… slurp slurp… Yeah, qualities are similar. So, same high score. 89 points - Serge Valentin, whiskyfun.com
