Sweet Mint Infusion (Aultmore) – 1991/22yo – 46%
Colour: Pale Straw.
Nose: A nose with some age on it, rather beautiful and keeps you nosing for ages. Sweet and oaky.
Palate: Treats you gently with some spices building after a while when left on the tongue. Full mouthfeel. The pinch of sweet spice and some oak combine to become almost fizzy. Yum. Classic bourbon summer fruits.
Finish: The summer berry fruits come through more on the finish, sweet, malty, and relaxing.
Thoughts: The age has worked well here, it’s a pleasure to drink and is nicely balanced. The official note mentions peppermint, I don’t particularly get that. 86.
