Whisky Reviews for Old Pulteney 15-year-old

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.00 points

  1. StyrianSpirit scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    A very beautiful nose is continued on the palate with the formidable bourbon and sherry barrel interplay, supplemented by bakery sweetness and delicate maritime seasoning. Is for me on at least one stage with the 17er. The nice thing is: You can enjoy this malt "just like that" and you can also "disassemble it in its entirety". If you like Glenfarclas without sherry turbo (ie the 25's from the standard range or older 4th-Fill-Casks), you should also like this malt.

      Clear, maritime, coastal spicy. And still with the shot of sherry and bakery flavors. So to speak the 17er, the direction 25er-Pulteney goes. If the 2006 "pure Bourbonpulteney pure", this is now the (also for the 17er) also typical "crystal clear-maritime Pulteney-Bourbon-and-Sherryfass-Melange".

      Very enjoyable! Crystal clear, now with sherry sweets and bakery that goes into vanilla. Everything is beautifully mint fresh primed with the pulteneytypischen 46%. The oak comes too. Then again sherry, cinnamon and a pinch of sea salt. Amazingly full for his 15 years and then again slightly in enjoyment. The balance between sherry and bourbon keg is absolutely successful.

      In the medium-long finish, then the oak again with some espresso.

    Nose: quite different with a lot of sherry influence, apple pie, glazed with burnt sugar, dried fruit, cinnamon, clove and a touch of vanilla. deep dark honey, sultana and spice. you can feel some ex-bourbon influence too in addition to the sherry finish which adds a nice depth.

    Palate: it’s lovely on the palate. with a nice sweetness, ripe orange, earth, salty, sweet, warming spices, Xmas cake , some chocolate, toffee and a hint of salt – lovely.
    Finish : Oak, chocolate, ripe orange marmalade, very nice wood notes, tea.
    Yummy stuff indeed. A very nice sherry oriented dram, with depth. Quite different from the 17 year old it ‘replaces’ , but still very good indeed. If I would be pressed I would choose the 17 by a really narrow margin, maybe since old habits are hard to rid o

    N: Notes of nutty hessian.
    T: I find it a bit tannic with an undecided mouthfeel.
    F: Grassy, fruity vanilla with a coastal touch.
    C: A very decent core range expression, sitting rather neatly in-between the 12yo and the sadly discontinued 17yo.
