Whisky Reviews for Old Pulteney 2004

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.61 points

  1. praisethepasta scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Very gentle and a bit fragile even, this is one of those whiskies you can pour and set aside for 30 minutes or even longer to give it all the time to slowly open up and blossom like the pretty flower it is. Dive into this with a fresh and clean palate as this will tickle your senses with all of its subtle brilliance.

      lemon and lemonzeste, melon, floral, honey, a soft woodnote joining the party, followed by the signature soft salty seabreezy Old Pulteney note. Not shy, but a bit understated at first, this will take you for a long rewarding walk by nosing it alone.

      Again it arrives with a lovely, lemony freshness, follwed by subtle sweeter notes (mint, vanilla, honey, a faint hint of after eight mints and milk cholcolate), with the typical saltiness to counterpart. A very nice balance indeed. another 10 - 20 minutes in and I picked up floral, grainy/gingerbread notes along with apple and some mango. Delish!

      medium long, salty, a bit of wood with some mintiness at the end. Not a let-down, but in any case the least rewarding part of this otherwise absolutely lovely whisky.

    Nice, delicious, very good single cask bottling - (almost) 14 years matured in an American Oak 1st Fill Ex-Bourboncasks!
