Aultmore has long been one
of the main components of Dewar's blended
whisky and in 1998 the
distillery was acquired by Bacardi, the
parent company of John Dewar's. Since
being taken over by Bacardi there hasn't
been any indication of a single Aultmore malt
being released. Although in the years
previous to the take over there had been several official
releases of by the then owners United
Distillers. Aultmore is clearly a 'blender's malt' - bottlings of Aultmore as a single malt are
becoming quite rare, but if you shop around you can
still find a few bottlings. Look for a
12-year-old bottling in the Flora and
Fauna series, a 21-year-old Rare Malts
release, and a 1997 bottling of a 1983
cask strength in the Flora and Fauna
Aultmore Tasting Notes
is probably an aperitif malt more than
anything else and rather dry.
12 Year Old - Nose: Fresh. Herbal. Light and sweet.
More fruity and flowery elements with water. It has something sherried as well.
Taste: Light. Smooth and a little sweet. Malty. A little floral and perfumy.
Long dry finish.
