Aultmore 25 Years Old

Aultmore 25 Years Old

  • Aultmore Distillery – Bacardi
  • 46% ABV
  • £295.42


What they say:

Reclined in damp shorn grass, vapours of lime and baked apples, each silken sip unveiling lush vanilla and buttery biscuits; dreich skies deserve a top-class dram.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt


Sticky toffee pudding, top with sliced banana and apple. Earthy oak comes through after a minute.


Crumbly fudge, buttered bread, more banana. Plum, orange and maybe some pineapple on the mid-palate, joined by leather and oak.


Warm, stewed fruit lasts on the finish, with a prickle of oak spice right at the end.

What I say:

Sampled in the Bacardi Last Great Malts whisky snug at the Edinburgh Whisky Stramash 2015


Dark golden umber (14/20), medium droplet tears with fine trails


Rich crystalline ginger, brown /  Demerara sugar, toffee and caramel, oak wood and cigar boxes, deep vanilla essence, crème brulee, apple and cereal barley malt, a little over-caramelised or burnt sugar


Smooth caramel and butterscotch sauce, cereal barley malt, toasted brown bread, vanilla essence, caramelised brown or cane sugar, some fruity notes, apple and orange zest, grapefruit, pineapple fritters in syrup, a little nutty hazelnut paste and almonds, praline and touches of cocoa powder and a light or creamy coffee, sticky toffee pudding with toffee and ginger sauce.


Long, ginger and dark chocolate, sweet sugars and aged oak and new leather shoes


Deep and delicious, a real pleasure to sample this 25 Years Old expression from Aultmore but a shame about the pricing of this malt as I expect I’ll never buy a bottle.

Score: 90/100
