Expert Senior Oldpultnie Tasting note

Oldpultnie gave this whisky 86 points
Color
Chestnutoloroso sherry
Nose

Sweet, nutty, PX sherry nose with the dark fruits and raisins. Nothing new or exeptional so far beside an earthy hint in the background.

Taste

Not bad mouthfeel, reasonable thickness and oily. Rich fruity flavours and sweet barley with a nice spicy touch on top. Good mix.

Finish

Medium sweet barley finish and drying out a little very slow.

Comments

For me the best out the glenglassaugh wood finish serie !!

Expert Senior LordBellamy Note
04 Feb 2018 4:55 pm
LordBellamy gave this whisky 81 points

Nase: Toffee, Haselnuss, dezente Süße, etwas Kirsche, Feigen, hintendran helle Früchte (Birne), metallisch, Menthol, leicht dumpf, changiert manchmal zu verbranntem Gummi, alkoholisch, schlecht ausbalanciert



Geschmack: der erste Punch durch den süßen PX, der sich auch gut durchsetzt, Pflaume, Nuss, etwas Birne und kaum Eiche

Finish: sehr kurz, auch hier zuerst der PX Einfluss mit Toffee, Karamell, Rosinen und getrockneten Pflaumen, dann folgen ein paar helle Früchte, hintenraus wird er sehr flach und verschwindet, ohne Eindruck zu hinterlassen.

Wasser: In der Nase ändert sich mit ein paar Tropfen nicht viel, im Geschmack wird der PX Eindruck dadurch ein wenig stärker

Fazit: Mhh, bin ich als Fan der 70er + 80er Glasaugen versaut? An mich geht der nicht wirklich ran. Die Nase ist viel zu muffig, gerade die leichte Gumminote, die sich immer wieder mal zeigt, sagt mir gar nicht zu, Auch ist er mir zu jung. Gebt dem Destillat einfach noch etwas Zeit zu reifen. Das waren meine Gedanken beim Aroma. Aber im Geschmack überzeugt er mich viel besser. Der ist süffig und leicht süß, lässt sich gut trinken, gerade mit ein paar Tropfen Wasser. Also: nichts zum Schnuppern und stundenlange Aromensuche, sondern einfach nur ein Malt zum Trinken - 81 Punkte

Using all the wrong lines and the wrong signs With the wrong intensity - martin l. gore

Color
Chestnutoloroso sherry
Nose

Strong on sweet dried fruits, raisins, with hints of cherry and an orangey freshness. Hazelnuts.

Taste

Light and sweet with vanilla and cherries.

Finish

Medium. Caramel at first, then dry with wood and lots of hazelnuts in the end.

Comments

I like the nose and the hazelnut finish, but the body is rather weak. NAS whisky without complexity, which is fine given its current retail price of roughly EUR 45.
