Aultmore 28 Years Old 1982 Hogshead Cask Berry's Own Selection (1x 70cl)
This expression has been bottled by Berry Bros & Rudd from a refill hogshead. Aultmore whisky distillery, founded in 1896 by Alexander Edwards who also owned Benrinnes distillery, lies to the north of Keith in Banffshire. The name is gaelic for "Great Burn", a reference to the Auchinderran burn which provides some of the distillery's water. In its early years, Aultmore produced sporadically and changed hands several times. The nose of the 1982 single malt offers fruity resinous, burnt grass notes with some spice showing. The palate has some buttery and toasty notes, building well to deliver malty, creamy texture and yellow fruit skins. Some smokiness becomes evident. The finish gives lingering sweetness cut by spice.
