Tasting notes for Aultmore 13 year old 1983/1997, Cooper’s Choice

Cooper’s Choice bottling
43% a.b.v.

Not unpleasant, an acceptable Speysider, and certainly worth the $28 that I paid for it. Shows a definite Speysider nose, with sweet and floral scents dominating (daffodil?), a little vanilla extract, maduro plantain, and vanilla and floral air freshener. The palate is oaky, slightly spicy, and a bit warm, fading to toasted oak. I am also reminded of the green foam “reservoir” substance used in floral arrangements, although that may be the odor of flowers steeped in water. The finish is remarkably clean, floral, grassy, and appetizing. It picks up a bit of quinine late in the finish, leaving a post-gin-and-tonic taste, alongside subtle toasted oak.
