Artist Collective 3.0 Distill At Aultmore 13 YO 2006


Baptised the “nip of the Buckie Road” by the fishermen of the small port of Buckie in Moray Firth some 10 miles from Aultmore, the single malt produced by this distillery has always been popular in its native region. Thanks to its very aromatic and fruity character, it is also highly prized by master blenders and is notably used in John Dewar & Sons’ blended scotches. With resplendent maturity and equally remarkable freshness, this version proudly displays the colours of the distillery, which was completely rebuilt in the early 1970s.

The complex first nose is characterized by notes of apricot and quince paste. Allowed to breathe, it becomes vanilla and even fruitier (peach). The sherry’s influence focuses on a beautiful oxidation (brandied cherry). The precise attack reveals flavours of lime blossom, verbena and orange zest. The mid-palate is malty and herbaceous (straw). Exotic fruit (mango, persimmon) and dark chocolate arrive in a grand finale. The long finish coats the taste buds in a layer of salted butter caramel. Superb notes of leather and forest floor bring lots of style to the very end of the palate.

Distillery Profile:
In the same way, each of the single malts found in our new Artist Collective range draws the richness of their olfactory and gustatory palettes from the marriage of various casks. Devoted to diversity, every region and every style of Scottish single malt, peated and unpeated, are represented.

Within this range we also find 43%, 48%, 57.1% (100 proof) and cask-strength bottlings. To illustrate the labels of the seven bottlings in our second collection, La Maison du Whisky has called on contemporary artists from very different backgrounds. Each of them brings their own very personal touch that echoes the richness of the single malts selected!
