Hunter Laing Aultmore Tasting Notes

Posted: August 3, 2016 in Aultmore, Scotch Whisky A-G

Hunter Laing Old Malt Cask Aultmore 1991 (21 year old) 50%

Bourbon/ Code: OMC2270/ HL9869

Dist: Sept 1991 Btl: July 2013/ Tasted: Aug 2013

A real oak and honey fest of a nose! There’s plenty of wonderfully mature, sawdusty oak, honey, lightly tropical fruit, malt and castor sugar. Deliciously aromatic and pleasantly balanced.

The palate is crisper and displays a lot less oak than the nose would lead you to believe. There’s more citrus, apricot, apple and crumbly spices with a liberal dollop of honey. Tart and tangy on the middle with a lovely cleansing piquancy. The honey counters and coats the mouth though. Very long with lingering notes of cinnamon coated apple and some lightly woody spices. A glorious palate!
