The area around Aultmore has always been remote and sparsely populated, hence it was a thriving location for the many smuggler’s bothies. The numerous burns and the peat of the Foggie Moss were additional incentives for the illicit stills. Even today, the Aultmore Distillery is solitary in the landscape, and captures the spirit of this fresh and delicately sweet, well-balanced whisky.
Colour: Delicate golden Chardonnay
Nose: A delightful, floral perfume initially dominates this gentle whisky, with a dusting of talcum powder emerging, enrobed entirely in the delicate sweetness of green apples
Body: Medium, firm
Palate: The fragrant floral note is carried through from the nose, and merges perfectly with a richer sweet and fruity character, which is redolent of a ripe plum pudding
Finish: A very satisfying delicate and dry finish
