Firkin Rare Tasting Notes
Big, fresh nose of red fruit and oak spice. This whisky rolls over the taste buds. Round and long with a ripper combo of red fruit, creamy malt, bright spirit and cinnamon oak.
So why pair Aultmore with Tawny Port? Well, both are smoother and less robust than their port brothers. Tawny port is softer and more subtle than Ruby Port and the tawny flavours melt into the Aultmore spirit in our custom cask.
About Firkin Rare Aultmore 2010 Whisky
The Aultmore distillery is located on the Foggie moss burn outside Keith in Speyside. The stretch of the road leading to the distillery often disappears in a blanket of fog. So even finding the distillery is hard, let alone a single malt Aultmore. Most Aultmore whisky finds itself in blended scotch. This Firkin whisky really is rare.
We paired an Aultmore 2010 with a tawny port in one of our fabulous Firkin custom casks. The result is a unique and satisfying whisky. A Rare and fabulous dram under the Firkin Rare label.
