Colour: burnished, russet. On the nose: fascinating to smell this directly after the 12 Years Old. Gone are those raw cereal notes. This is much more familiar Speyside territory, though very gentle. Raisins, sultanas, apricots. When that classic sweetness fades there are indeed the grassy notes at the core of the whisky, the leitmotif of Aultmore.
In the mouth: again, classic Speyside, with that vegetative twist. In fact, the maltiness of the 12 is still here in significant quantities, making it another unique taste. This one’s a little meatier, pan-fried grouse. Very bitter and rich dark fruits. Very dark chocolate. Same nice chewy texture. Heaps of flavour, though it’s a fraction tame compared to the 12. The finish is medium length, without too much in the way of spiciness.
