Aultmore 1990–25 yo Burns Malt (TWB)

I received 3 samples for review some time ago from TWB (The whisky Barrel), and it took my some time to get to them.

SMWS 73.55 apples and pears [Aultmore 21]–A funky weird dram…

Our noses and Palates are very different, that’s given. Some people love certain whiskies other people can not appreciate and vise versa, and this single cask from SMWS (I got from Tom, a long time ago – thanks bro!) is a terrific example of such a whisky.

Aultmore 5 yo  “Provenance” – Douglas Laing – Commemorative 1,000th Bottling Edition

Being a young whisky does not not automatically make one a lesser whisky, and with all the NAS phenomena going on and just taking over the whisky scene, it’s nice to see examples of independent bottlers indicating – 5 year old on the label, as if saying “I am 5 year old, and I am not ashamed of it, I …

Tasting Two very different Aultmores (MoM, Wemyss)

I recently received to very different samples of Aultmore single cask, the first is a very young CS Aultmore bottled by the chaps at Master of Malt for their proprietary single casks, and the other a much older 30 yo Aultmore bottled by Wemyss Malts, at their regular 46%. A kicking youngster Vs. an older gentleman, could be a very …
