Sipping Shed Aultmore 11 Tasting Notes
Nose: Praline, honeycomb, orange oil, singed raisins picked from a slice of cake. Some dry earthy heather notes and a touch of earl grey. It’s rich and spicy on the nose with a gentle waxiness.
Palate: The palate follows through from the nose. Lots of classic sherry notes, dried tobacco, hints of treacle, oak spice and a dash of dandelion and burdock. It has depth and weight from the Aultmore spirit which brings a mineral note and stone fruits. Delicious stuff.
As the sherry notes fade the minerality and spice come through a little more. Warm and satisfying
