Firkin Rare Tasting Notes
Official tasting notes
Dried fruits, rich malt, sweet honey and baking spices throughout the palate, with a long finish. Delicious!
Ed's tasting notes
Colour: Natural colour; pale dusty gold. Oily in the glass, with thick parallel tears running down the side.
Nose: Red berries with vanilla cream. Soft malt bread with butter. A little fudge, a little oak.
Palate: Stewed apples and pears. Redcurrants and blackcurrants macerated in sugar. Lemon and vanilla tart. Cereal drizzled with honey.
Finish: Medium finish. Fruit, malt and a touch of gentle warming spice.
About this Aultmore 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 single malt Aultmore whiskies. Most Aultmore whisky finds itself in blended scotch. This Firkin whisky really is rare.
Firkin Whisky Co paired an Aultmore 2010 with Marsala wine in one of their fabulous double wood custom casks. The result is a unique and satisfying whisky. A unique and awesome dram under the Firkin Rare label.

What you need to know about taxes
All alcoholic products sold by TopWhiskies are sold subject to UK alcohol tax, which is already included in the price.
UK sales are subject to VAT (currently 20%), which is included in the price. Sales outside of the UK are not subject to this tax, and international prices do not include it.
We use a specialist US shipper who sorts out US taxes. These costs are factored into the US shipping charges. So shipping may look pricey, but remember it covers your taxes as well.
For all other territories, including those in Europe, please note: your order could be subject to local sales taxes and duties upon arrival in the destination country. All additional charges are the responsibility of the recipient. As customs policies vary widely from country to country, TopWhiskies has no control over these charges, so you should contact your local customs office for further information. If you refuse to pay any import duties and taxes, this could result in the goods being destroyed by customs or being returned back to us - any refund offered would include a deduction of our costs.
