    exciting fruity Bourbon Cask - no overpainting - but very interesting to try such an old Pulteney
    • Nose
      91 91
      begins rather sour and flat - after 10 min in the Snifter it becomes fuller and sweeter - crystallized lemon slices, banana chips, canned pineapple, canned peach, flamed molten sugar on greenwood oak slices, sweetened lemon, citrus oil, honey, cinnamon, vanilla, cut flower stems (gerbera, tulips ), from time to time blowing a touch of sweet lilac blossoms, some salt, a lively pulsating light but complex nose - dessert feeling
    • Taste
      90 90
      spicy dry, the oak covers the tongue with a sour, astringent oak syrup, pineapple, dried pineapple and white gummy bears dancing on the tongue, some salt, mint - cooling fresh
    • Finish
      89 89
      Eucalyptus, pepper, mint, chili, tree sap, freshly peeled branches, pineapple juice, apple slices
