“Great Aultmore with just a few off notes of new make on the nose.”
This was selected for its spicy sweetness, which the bottlers wanted for it to be the ultimate cigar malt - a whisky destined for pairing with a cigar.
A nice light sherried whisky. A good one even if you don't smoke.
This dram has a amber-like color.
Nose (89): more than average. honey, toffee, peach, vanilla, citrus, floral. A few notes of new make on a rather good nose.
Palate (91): powerful, oily. honey, smoke, wood, spices, fruits, peach, citrus, tobacco.
Finish (90): longer than average. honey, smoke, spices.So based on other whiskies I have already tasted I rate this Aultmore 9 year Cigar Malt with 90 points over 100.
