  1. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    I like the OP from the ex-Bourbon barrel, Isabella Fortuna, Noss Head, mjam ... but the smoke does not fit in here, totally out of place. Bah, he has something disgusting, I have to be allergic to something. Deny further statements because of personal bias.

    This has got no peated barley in it, it's just finished in casks previously used for "proper" peated whisky.
    Scapa does the same with Glansa.
    At Scapa they said they receive their casks from a cooperage with no information about their origin.
    Pulteney however source their casks from spesific distilleries but will not disclose which.
    The Pulteney approach probably gives more control, and in my opinion pays off as this is a much better result.

      Sweet with a clear note of coastal peat.
      Still retains a lot of the Pulteney fresh ripe fruit.
      A good and interesting nose, which leads me to think they are quite picky about the casks they choose.

      This is not bad, if you're not looking for the extreme.
      Peat is gentle, mellow, coastal.
      Texture is creamy, and the 46% give it a slight and very pleasant spice level.
      A little salty, sweet citrus, chared wood notes.
    • Finish

      Could have been longer, because what is there is good.
      Light peaty smoke, sweet.

  3. TsiAI scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Smell: Very typical Fordney style, cheese powder, soda crackers with milk and salt, soft sea water and smoke, the salty and umami taste is particularly obvious: the wine is medium-bodied, and the oily feel is average. Creamy vanilla, crackers, wood soaked in sea water, spices, there is a hint of smoke in the middle, and the smell of orange peel and red fruit is very obvious at the back.
    Ending rhyme: wood, sea salt, strawberry jam
    Overall: 84.5/100. The mark of the bourbon barrel is quite obvious. Although it is a NAS, the level of blending is quite good. The new wine is not obvious and the richness is still online.

    Not impressed. First nose is decent: coastal, seaweed, hint of smoke, little sweetness. But after 20 mins it's all gone. Taste is obviously young spirits, finish isn't good either.

  7. wbarchive_875995 scored this whisky 83 points Expert Junior

    Marine, fresh, with the aroma of the sea breeze, ripe pear and apples, mint and honey, salty taste with a slight bitterness, with tones of the sea, salted caramel and ripe fruit, medium-length finish, oak-fruity with tones of smoke.
    Very interesting NAS from Pulteney. The aroma is generally quite serious, the taste and finish hints at young alcohols. In general, for the money I was pleasantly surprised.

    First smell: oak orange blossom toast roasted chestnuts seaweed smoked is very soft and balanced. The flavor of the vanilla spice and a little honey will appear after 15 minutes without covering the distilled flavor of NAS. The spicy greenness of young whisky is more obvious Soft and thin Medium sweetness The warmth of alcohol The medium peat taste is dominant and gradually changes to the sweetness of bourbon barrel. After that it is interesting pea taste Sea salt a little paint taste color: golden yellow clear aftertaste: short but smoky with sea breeze Very outstanding as nas is still remarkable
