Aultmore 22 Year Old (SMWS 73.69 – Dark Side Eclipsed by Sweet Joys)
I was suggested to review before looking up the distillery code and cask info, which is what I would be doing below!
[The info will be filled up after my tasting notes]
Colour: Light gold
Nose: Right off the bat, sherry cask! Strawberry jam, orange peel, red cherry, raisin, toffee, glazed roast duck (is this the roast duck dram? That I’ve read about?), cocoa powder, oak, baking spice.
Palate: Strawberry jam, sweet malt, cereal, nuts, espresso, ginger, cola.
Finish: Long and spicy, ginger, pepper, oak tannins, mineral water.
My guess: 18-20 Year old, refill sherry cask, Speyside/Highland malt?
After looking up: Aultmore 22Y, 52.9%, Refill sherry butt.
