Lessons in the Dram

Have you ever thought of becoming a professional whisky taster? You’re in luck because you could! And it’s a serious job. No perfume, no coffee, or anything that could affect your sense of smell and taste. If you could do without them, you might want to consider. We know that renowned distilleries do hire whisky tasters as part of their team. So, why not? 

Description

One of the uncommon fives from Dewar's The Last Great Malt, launched in 2014. It is the most mysterious of the bunch, said to have come from the misty Foggie Moss. When people meet the Aultmore, they are in for a surprise as it is friendly and refreshing.

This Aultmore douses itself with vanilla floral perfume. It is sweet like honey and cheery like citrus fruits. From time to time, the 12-year-old skips down the meadow, lifting soft grass into the air. Spring has begun.

Tasting Notes

Sight
Pale straw
Nose
Oh so creamy! A unique and intricate blend of apples, honey, and almonds, accented by floral notes. Evokes springtime memories with scents of freshly dried cotton sheets, Highland toffee, wine gums, bits of fresh mint, and a faint bitter undertone.
Palate
On the palate is a delicious vanilla nougat made with cream and nuts.
Finish
Ends on a floral note with some green olives before fading off into a fruity finish.

Lessons in the Dram

Did you know that the first whisky isn’t from Scotland? According to history, an Eastern alchemist first invented the light copper-coloured liquid and called it aqua vitae, which means “the water of life.”

Description

Warm creamy freshness—it’s a palatable stroll in the highlands. The Glengoyne 12 Year Old gathered its floral sherry notes from being aged in first-fill hogshead ex-bourbon barrels and first-fill sherry casks. Guess what? The whisky isn’t peated! It has zero PPM (peatiness unit measure) value. The Glengoyne air dries the barley, giving the unpeated whisky that smooth finish.

Tasting Notes

Sight
Rich gold
Nose
A sweet perfume of toffee apples, zesty nectarines in syrup and spice, and a touch of acacia honey, held together by the tender loving presence of toasted barley at the back.
Palate
Sweet and creamy with enjoyable flavours of over-ripe grape, honey, small amounts of vanilla, coconut milk, chocolate ice cream, and oak spice.
Finish
Expect a long satisfying oily finish. There’s a bold coffee aftertaste that feels like the end of a good cuppa.

When it comes to consuming whisky, no one drinks more than the French. Oui! An average French drinks 2.15 litres of whisky a year. Santé!
