Whisky Reviews for Old Pulteney Huddart

  1. peatbogger scored this whisky 82 points Specialist

    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.
    • Nose

      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
      80 80
      Could have been longer, because what is there is good.
      Light peaty smoke, sweet.

    N- Oozing coastal notes with seaweed and sweet tinge of grilled marshmallow over open fire barbecue, tasty light burnt sugar, carbon and mineral. (87/21)

    P- Spicy and minty on the outer, with salty sweet at heart, some clove, some pepper that evolved to liquorice candy, walk in the spice market, bonfire and warm ginger honey. (87/21)

    F- Medium, well rounded creamy mouth coat, silky, candy and crystallized sugar bites. (87/21)

    B/B- 88/22. Nicely vatted at good abv for the body and structure. Anything less may appeared anonymous.

  3. Dre73 scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    Peat is present in nose and finish a bit, the body is dominated by sweetness. Pretty pleasant though.
    • Nose
      82 82
      Some clear peat influence, some rubber, peatsmoke and overripe fruit, especially overripe banana. Along the way, this overripe thing disappears, sweet smoke, peach and apricot remain.
    • Taste
      83 83
      Light pepper, sweet, caramel. Sweet smoke, some orange and honey, pretty full body.
    • Finish
      81 81
      Only a little pepper remains, some sweet smoke, caramel and honey, not a very long finish.

  4. StyrianSpirit scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Exciting nose, decent appearance in the mouth (especially for those who like slightly "peaty notes"), rather medium-length finish. Acts a little young.
