Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Bottled by: The Sipping Shed 70cl / 61.3%
An 11-year-old refill sherry hogshead of Aultmore 2010 from The Sipping Shed, bottled in 2021 - sadly there are just 77 bottles of this as the cask was discovered to have leaked much of its contents during maturation.
However, the extra air and increased surface area to volume ratio in Cask 9000019 as a result of the leak have given the remaining 2010 Aultmore within a faster oxidation and a concentrated sherry bath, and at 61.3% this is a serious flavour bomb.

Official 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 to the sherry party. Delicious stuff.
Finish: As the sherry notes fade the minerality and spice come through a little more. Warm and satisfying
