Aultmore 1982 (Mo Òr)

Posted by: Ruben Luyten In: Aultmore

Aultmore 1982 bottled in the upmarket Mo Òr whisky collection from the same cask series as the Aultmore 1982 by A.D. Rattray reviewed almost exactly one year ago.

 

Aultmore 1982 | Mo ÒrAultmore 28 yo 1982 (46%, Mo Òr 2011, bourbon hogshead #2219, 300 btl.)

Nose: very malty, with all kinds of grainy notes, hints of porridge. Usually not my kinda profile, but this is quite creamy, with hints of butter and milk chocolate, and adds some apple cake with cinnamon and nice honey. Hay, dry grasses and a fair amount of spices. Hints of old cupboards. Nice. Mouth: good attack with herbs and spices up front (eucalyptus, chamomile). Then a wave of citrus fruits (grapefruit, lemon peel). Developing nuttiness over time as well as a bitterness of Seville oranges, walnut skin and oak. Finish: medium long, medium dry with toasted oak and herbs.

A good Aultmore with plenty of character and a firm bitterness. Better than the A.D. Rattray version. Around € 125 for a 50 cl bottle.

Score: 86/100
