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.

Whiskybroker 25yo Aultmore & Macduff

What I say:

Finishing off our Aultmore trio having sampled the 14yo 73.74 and 22yo 73.69 from SMWS we have here a single sherry butt distilled in 1990 and matured for 25 years, bottled by Whiskybroker.

Colour:

Dark burnished copper amber (16/20), quick medium-sized tears, medium tears leave fine legs

Nose:

Sweet red fruits, plum, cherry, strawberry, floral roses, geraniums, nutty walnut, hazelnut, chocolate, dry fruitcake mix, malty barley flour, herbal cumin.

Taste:

Cherry cola, blackcurrant cordial, vimto almost, woodsmoke, massively malty, chocolate with hints of nuts and raisins, treacle, burnt sugars, crème brulee topping & spun sugar, crème caramel, pizza ovens – woodsmoke, sweet tomato fruits and herbal oregano

Finish:

Long, milk chocolate, stout/porter, smoked Christmas cake!

Overall:

Wow! A great whisky with an unusual burnt sweetness and masses of fruitiness that romps through darker berry fruits backed by strong malt and chocolate. Spend some time with this one!

Score: 89/100

Don’t take my word for it:
