Aultmore 2007 (Daily Dram)

Posted by: Ruben Luyten In: Aultmore

Among the new releases from The Nectar of the Daily Drams, there is this Aultmore 2007. A six years old bourbon cask with such an intense colour and so many red hues. A miracle?

 

Aultmore 2007 - Nectar of the Daily DramsAultmore 6 yo 2007 (50,3%, The Nectar of the Daily Drams 2014, bourbon cask)

Nose: very aromatic, with some red berries (strawberries and redcurrant) and aromatic citrus (lime, bergamot). Aromatic and slightly bubblegummy. Cotton candy. Juicy malt. A lot of vanilla (marshmallows), leather and hints of white chocolate. Traces of American bourbon indeed. Some pencil shavings as well. Very attractive and easy-drinking. Mouth: sweet and fairly modern – perfectly planned oak trickery. Apricots in syrup and fruit liqueurs. Coconut and vanilla. Cotton candy again. Maple syrup. Chocolate. Noticeable oak again, as well as mint and something strange that I can’t really put my finger on. Something metallic maybe. Finish: long, very sweet, all kinds of fruit candy and oak spices like ginger.

Very sweet, modern whisky. Nice to see this is possible after only six years. I would have sworn this was made outside of Scotland (Disneyland?). Good stuff though and very affordable. Around € 50.

Score: 86/100

  • Tony: I heard last year from a Glendronach rep that there were <10 '71/2 casks left - can't remember the exact number (6 or 8 maybe). And that
  • Tony: May have been 130 Euros in Japan, but was marked up to 279 Euros by the time it reached LMDW!
  • Tudval: Just because canadian whisky 'can' have other stuff in it, doesn't mean it does. Regulation is not the be all and end all. Certainly these days there
