Aultmore of the Foggie Moss, 12yo
The 12 year old Aultmore single malt Scotch whisky, unveiled in 2014 for the Last Great Malts by Dewar's. A refreshing dram, with plenty of vanilla, honey and citrus, alongside a touch of grassiness. It's been quite a while since a distillery bottling of Aultmore has been released.
Fairly sweet caramel aftertaste with a nice punch to it. Would definitely recommend this single malt scotch for novices and whiskey lovers alike. A higher proof non chill filtered and no color added. Just agood ole green apples and honey Speyside. Very smooth and excellent in taste.
Aultmore is located in the Speyside region of Scotland, between the towns of Keith and Fochabers. It sits in a small hollow known locally at 'The Foggie Moss'. The distillery was founded in 1896 by Alexander Edward, who also owned the Benrinnes and had co-founded Craigellachie, although production did not begin until 1897. The name is derived from Allt Mòr, the water source for the distillery, and this translates as 'big stream' from Gaelic.
