Aultmore 25yo 1990 cask

What they say:

Distilled 15.05.1990 at Aultmore distillery in Speyside and matured for over 25 years in Sherry Butt 3241 before bottling 10.07.2015 at cask strength of 57.8%

Lovely dark sherry colour, full bodied, and a huge sherry sweet nose with a bit of a spirity tang.
Without water it is nippy, but very fruity.
A splash opens it up a bit, and brings out a woody taste with a hint of caramel.
The finish is medium with a peppery spicy aftertaste.
