Whisky Reviews for Old Pulteney 2006 CA

6 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 83.47 points

  1. CST1986 scored this whisky 84 points Expert Junior

    This is all about simple pleasures. Malt as natural as malt can be, maybe a bit young, but with water totally accessible and quaffable. Well done, good cask selection, and probably Cadenhead has still a few casks left for further maturation of what is a very promising North Highland whisky. If you like your (high quality) Eau de Vie, you will most probably also like this a lot.
    • Nose
      84 84
      Without water:
      Sharp, young, spirity, but also pleasantly sweet, with cotton candy, sweet barley mash, eau de vie and vanilla. Traces of ginger and candied apricots, but the untamed alcohol is just a bit too much.
      With water:
      Much better and more accessible. Now the eau de vie notes are even stronger and very entertaining. I've got an eau de vie distilled from the fruit of European yew trees open (you can find it in Germany) that noses very, very similar! There's the same rooty sweetness, the same resinous note (but not like in older whiskies) and the same complex sour-woody profile. I think this is mainly due to the fresh and salty spirit from Pulteney, not a result from cask maturation. If you give your nose a chance to access this with a bit of time, it's quite rewarding and interesting for such a young malt.

      Neat:
      Strong, sour, sweet, young and steamy. You won't get a proper access to this Pulteney without water.
      With water:
      Much better and unfolding on the tongue very nicely. White rum, starting quite simple with sweet vanilla popcorn (yes, it's there), but developing into hints of gentian and damp earth, getting quite rooty after a few seconds in the mouth, even a bit medicinal. I like that quite a lot. What an interesting little Pulteney!
    • Finish
      84 84
      Medium, the rooty notes are gone, but coming back nicely together with white pepper, ginger and lychee.

  2. DramGoodLife scored this whisky 84 points Expert Junior

    Simple and basic Old Pulteney but nothing offensive.
    • Nose
      Salted caramel with a nice helping of sea breeze. Clean example of bourbon cask.
    • Taste
      Peppery, vanilla with some lemon, some saltiness. Lots of pepper on the tongue.
    • Finish
      Sharp shot of wood, pepper is still there, dry oak with heat.

  3. dram-drinker scored this whisky 83 points Moderator

    Caramel, vanilla, yellow fruits, quinces, starch

  4. ctu scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    Young, simple but great Pulteney, good hogsheads.
    • Nose
      A bit alcoholic. Salted popcorn, butter, citruses, malt and apple puree.
    • Taste
      Powerful, sweet and spicy. Milk caramel, honey, cereals, vanilla and pepper.
    • Finish
      Long, sweet, spicy.

  5. DenisL scored this whisky 73 points Expert Senior

    Balance ... it's hard to say, well, let (18) There were two approaches with a difference of 6 days ... additional aeration added 3 !!! bala.Pechalno (73)
    • Nose
      The aroma is strongly alcoholic ... it's very difficult to catch the shades and you can not do without water .... malt, sweet fruit ... apple juice ... citrus note (18)
    • Taste
      Taste delicious, sweet ... everything is sad (17)
    • Finish
      Finish peppery, sweet and creamy ... a hint of roasted peanuts ... a pinch of spices ... a banana and mint (20)

  6. Tauti did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

     Cadenhead's official notes:

     NOSE: Toffee popcorn, cereals, barley sugar, developing rich notes with this coastal dram. The nose is great now into the palate!PALATE: The palate is driving in some incredible richness with some fresh ground black pepper, haggis crisps, cardamon pod. We also find a sweet note after this dram is left to open in the glass.FINISH: The finish is really good with a hint of red liquorice, banana loaf and marshmallow, the finish coats the palate with a lingering sweetness before the spicy mid note on the palate comes back in for a few moments.
