Aultmore 12YO Bottling Note

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, so this is all rather exciting indeed.

Aultmore 12 Year Old Reviews

Smells divine !! Tastes lovely...


28th September 2020


Delicious, full of pear and spice, along with pastry and floral notes. Lovely light whisky, sweet and full of flavour.

Very disappointing.

Overwhelmed by it's alcoholic strength. To my palate it tasted like refined paint stripper.

Go buy one!

I am an Aultmore fan! Had I not also had the 18(super good), this review would be more glowing for the 12. This stuff at the price point is incredible. Vanilla, Apple, Lemon, and Spice, it really is one of the more complex Speysides. Being bottled at 46%, they really let you taste the whisky. I always have one of these bottles on hand and it is by far the bottle I have to re-buy the most. It's my daily go to.

Give time to breath (both in bottle and glass), other wise it’s quite sharp in the beginning..
Nose : golden raisin, under ripe banana, spices, grapefruits citrusy freshness
Palate : light fruits, vanilla, spices kick in strongly at the back
Finish : soft lingering medium finish...

Wonderful 12yo

Needs time to stand

First taste? Nothing to write home about, a little harsh even, so left on the desk whilst I got on with something else.

Came back to it after 15 minutes and... completely changed?!

Very smooth, honey and some vanilla. Bananas maybe? I didn't get any citrus but did get syrupy bananas.

On first sip? Would've been 2 star but grown to quite like it.

Much better ones available

Completely tasteless
Don’t feel like I was drinking whiskey at all
Waste of money
Can’t call it scotch at ay

An great exciting find!

A friend brought it back from the UK as a gift for me. What a wonderful pour. Looking forward to you being able to sell in the states!

Great malt

This is an absolutely outstanding dram and the fact that it has natural coloring and is non-chill filtered makes it a 10+.

Something about the whole natural coloring and non-chill filter mentality really resonates with me.

Hard to put into words.

Came across it in the duty-free while returning from vacation in Europe. Wish I had stockpiled a bunch as I don’t know how available it will be anymore.

Good scotch

Really smooth

11th August 2019

Must try

Have tried every whiskey and this has won my full attention - delicous, warming, takes me to a happy place
Love you Aultmore.

25th June 2019

Unexpected and complex

I'm getting a bit of butterscotch / caramel and bitter oak on the nose; overripe oranges, cedar, and eucalyptus on the taste, rubber and pepper on an enduring finish. Fascinating and delicious.

27th April 2019


I really like this one. Purchased $50US based upon 46%, non chill filtered, no color added, and because I'd never seen it before. While a 'light' whisky in color, this is a heavy hitting Speyside. Fruity, malty, great nose, looong legs, and a wonderful lingering finish. If you are looking for peat or smoke go elsewhere. A teaspoon of water stretches this one into an even better value imo. Never heard of it?....ya...I hadn't either...and I'd consider buying a case. I only hope that my review falls upon deaf ears to keep the price from increasing. I actually fear not being able to find more bottles of this one.

15th January 2019

Smooth with a slightly sweet after taste.

Too smooth for its own good, one of those where you open the bottle full of good intentions and wake up to find the contents appear to have evaporated. Seriously, a fine example of Speyside malt, beautifully smooth like liquid butterscotch.

17th December 2018

Brine and salty lingering finish, unique and delicious

I normally prefer peaked whiskeys but loved this one for it’s brine and fiery finish.

1st December 2018

Apple/pear, honey, caramel. Long finish. Stunning.

Such a smooth dram. Instant green apple/pear on the nose, following into honey, malt and a slight cask influence. Getting a feint caramel on the nose after a few small drops of water.

Citrus in the mouth with caramel following and a hint of malt. Very smooth.

Long silky finish, goes on and on. Caramel fades and Apple reins.

Fantastic speyside single malt. As mentioned above a perfect summer dram.

What an 81 birthday gift my next purchase, oh yes

Palest single malt that I have drunk undiluted, what a surprise, subtle pleasing blend rasberries, pears honey bananas sprinkling of sea salt and heather. Then comes the finish - wow l- o- n- g lingering

20th March 2018


Pears with a kick. This dram is pears from end to finish. Whilst this may not seem that interesting, there are subtle complexities from end to finish as the whisky develops in the glass. It's simply beautiful.

22nd February 2018

A great find!

My new favourite! A great pick me upper after a long day. Lightly colored but very pleasant indeed.

Excellent Burst of Honey and English Cream!

"Nose" (undiluted)
Floral notes of dandelion, roses, apple blossoms, honey sweetness and butter. Very balanced and pleasing drawing you in again and again.

"Palate" (undiluted)
Powerful burst of graprefruit and pears. Honey, fruit cup syrup (in a good way!), golden wheat, barley, vanilla, banana, English cream and custard.

"Finish" (undiluted)
Cream, lemons, sea salt, limes. The flavors linger a long time!

General Impressions
Very good! I was really surprised by the obscure distillery. Brilliant and well balanced! Highly recommended!

29th January 2018

Brilliantly understated

Wow. What a find. Citrusy & fresh. Fantastic with a good glug of water. Really brings out the honey and grassy notes. My new favourite 12 year old speyside!

21st December 2017

Highly recommended and be mindful not to get a drop of water anywhere near you glass. Not necessary.

Trying it for the first time and thought it may be a drop of water but courageously decided it against it and happy that I did. Vanilla sweet nose delicious caramel on the palate and a subtle sweet finish. Just moved up to my top 5.

24th November 2017

Love it !!

At first I thought ugh...about five drops of water...and fifteen minutes later there it was !!! Pow ! A Light citrus lemon drop and a never ending finish...a summer dram ! Grade A Heady stuff he said....nothing very complex here....but packs a punch..and..deee lish....

7th July 2017

An asset to any collection

A very good light whisky with a hint of citrus. Not a superstar but good value.

This was recommended to me and so having read the reviews thought I'd give it a go - it's everything everyone said about it - a real gem. If you're a fan of Speyside you need give this one a try .

A winner

Bought two of these now, certainly one of my favourite whiskeys. Fairly sweet caramel aftertaste with a nice punch to it. Would definitely recommend for novices and whiskey lovers alike.

29th December 2016


Very smooth and excellent taste. I liked this from seeing it first on the top shelf of my local having my first taste. I dont remember going home!

26th December 2016

Good stuff

Really hard to find this one but I did and it was worth it. Basically tastes like glenlivet 12 but at a higher proof non chill filtered and no color added. Just agood ole green apples and honey Speyside. Delicious.The Sugarbear

Excellent 12 year old

This is excellent 12 years old single malt. Recommended. I find it quite similar to another Dewar´s distillery product, Graicellachie 13 year. Both are really nice whiskies and worth buying. Will definetely buy another bottle of this.

26th June 2016

Very nice!

This reminds me of the standard Glenmorangie 10, but with more . . . oomph. The Aultmore 12 is a nice, light summer dram with just enough complexity to make it worth your while. It has a pleasant lemony, vanilla nose that arrives on the palate with a solid malty foundation. Again, this is not terribly complex, but what it does it does very well indeed. The 46% abv, no chill filtration/castration (great metaphor there, steve g.!) and no evidence of caramel coloring are key characteristics that lift it up. Other distilleries aiming for this sort of lighter flavor profile should take note - this is how it's done.

A secret no more

What a rare surprise. Very difficult to find in the states. Light in color but full in flavor. If you prefer an unpeated scotch this is the standard all should be measured against. A little ice opens the flavor profile and makes it a bit cloudy which is normal due to the non chilled filtering. The best of Speyside.

23rd April 2016

The Flying Scotsman

This one was quite a nice surprise. Never had it before, but I would highly recommend it.

28th February 2016

Foggie Moss

One of the best 12 year ago Scotch I have had in a long time. Hard to find Speyside gem.
