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 review

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 whiskies find themselves 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.

Meet the Founder

Mike Collings

Mike Collings could have retired with an incredible track record in whisky. He had created Johnnie Walker Blue & Green Labels, The Classic Malts, Rare Malts, Distillers Edition, Flora & Fauna series, Cardhu and Royal Lochnagar. That’s pretty good as far as CVs go.

He’s been working in whisky for 40 years. You couldn’t blame him for packing it in and putting his feet up. That would have been the sensible thing to do. But Mike is many things. Sensible isn’t one of them. Mike stirs the pot. He thinks about things differently and always asks: ‘what if …’

So, he found himself enjoying a few drams in a Tokyo bar thinking: what if I created a whisky that was unique on the single cask single malt market.

So he did. And it's Firkin awesome whisky.
