Douglas Laing - Provenance - Aultmore - 5 YO - Tasting Notes

At Maltstock in the masterclass from Jan Beckers got to try this one from the Provenance series.

Some details on this bottling:
- A commemorative limited edition
- Autumn Distillation
- Bottled at 50%
- Small batch selection
- Aultmore Distillery
- Drawn from 2 dark Sherry Casks
- 5 years old
- Non chill filtered
- Not colored

This one was a surprise at the masterclass and turned around at first. It is a very powerful, sweet and dark fruity dram, very nice!

Raisin, dark chocolate, rich, Christmas cake, equaliptus, strong spices, kurkumma, curry and other soft almost Indian like spices. Ginger, some dark fruits and plums.

Soft leather and some tobacco at first, then some coffee and chocolate with a hint of wood. The spices and sweetness from the nose comes back here very nicely on the palate. Vanilla, speculaas and dark summer fruits.

Medium length finish, soft fruit notes with lots of spices.

Giving this one a 7,5 out of 10. Very nice dram. Even been 5 years old it feels balanced and has a lot of rich fruit notes in it. Tasted it at the masterclass, and this one I really needed to give more time then I had at that time, then I would have gotten more out of it I think. Very lovely...
