    Old
    Pulteney 1995/2009 (61.2%, OB for
    Pipefest Basel 2009, cask #2971)

    The profits of this bottling will
    be transferred to a Swiss association
    that helps children who suffer from
    cancer (Kinderkrebs Stiftung Regio
    Basilensis). Just because of that,
    this bottling deserves a 99 score
    - or more. Colour: pale straw. Nose:
    much fruitier than the old G&M
    (Williams pears) but the grassiness
    is well here, as well as whiffs of
    wet leaves, paraffin again, fresh
    almonds, seaweed and sea breeze, apple
    peeling and graphite/linseed oil.
    Very, very... well, Pulteney. With
    water: bursts with fermented pears
    (you know, the stuff that distillers
    use to distil pear spirit) and then
    the same kind of leafy/leathery notes
    as in the old 8. Very restless, we
    like that. Mouth (neat): sure it’s
    very strong but once again, it’s
    not unlike the old (undiluted) 8yo
    but with some added fresh fruits (apples,
    pears, pineapples). With water: even
    more fruits (a little bubblegum and
    quite some strawberries) and an obvious
    coastal character coming out (salt,
    oysters). Finish: long, with some
    pepper and even a little mustard joining
    the dance. Comments: a true malt whisky,
    without any of these tiresome modern
    tricks. SGP:731 - 87
