The Cooper's Choice range of single cask whiskies from Scotland's finest distilleries are releases from the Family owned Independent Bottlers; The Vintage Malt Whisky Company. The range is a homage to the passion and skill of the Coopers, the craftsmen, who build the barrels for maturation of Scotch Whisky. The range focuses on the impact of maturation in oak, and includes several obscure and rare wood finishes.
This 10 Year Old Aultmore spent most of it's life maturing in an American Oak cask prior to a finish in a Pineau Des Charentes cask. Pineau is a fortified grape aperitif made in western France, and is generally fruity and sweet. The cask turned out 192 bottles at a natural cask strength of 52.5% ABV. No chill-filtration or colour additions were made prior to bottling.
Expect a fragrant and fruity (red fruits) nose. The Palate is mouthcoating and sweet with bright red summer fruits and touches of spice. The finish has good length wit spice and fruit.
