Taking its name from the Gaelic 'an t'Allt Mòr' meaning the "big burn", referring to their water source of the Auchinderran Burn, Aultmore is one of the great success stories of the last 20 years. Relatively unknown until released in the cult Flora & Fauna range and the blue-chip Rare Malts selection, recent years have seen the emergence of official Aultmore bottlings as premium single malts in their own right. Smart branding and exceptional quality means that anyone who tastes this Speyside gem knows they've found something special.
Fine, balanced and elegant; a quintessential Speysider from the town of Keith in Banffshire, Aultmore is prized for it's forward profile of orchard fruit and floral complexity, with mature examples adding a woody incense note that is very well complimented by either a lighter sherry cask or even just left in Bourbon wood for its lifetime.
We are pleased to have secured this 8-year-old Aultmore cask which is showing tons of upside at this age; a brilliant value in hogshead with over 300 bottles to its credit this has a long life ahead of it and no mistake. This will be best left in Bourbon wood for the next few years before re-racking into either a refill oloroso hoghsead or 1st fill manzanilla to take full advantage of the spirit's elegance and fruit profile.
