Color
Pale gold
Nose

Honey, leathery, salt, fruity, oranges, apples, a whiff of apricot, melon, grassy, some spiciness, nutmeg...in time something like orange lemonade (‘ranja’).

Taste

Citrus fruit, oranges, a bit creamy, vanilla, salty liquorice, pepper. A nice firm entry.

Finish

Creamy and sweet, oranges, malty, again the orange lemonade (‘ranja’), again some liquorice, anise, mint and then some apples and honey. Medium to long length.

Nose

Very shy, a bit closed-off at first. There's a whiff of banana and lemon, also some vanilla. Yeah, now we're getting somewhere. More like the Pulteney that I know and love. A whiff of lime, galia melon, and slightly nutty too.

Taste

Signature Pulteney. Lemon, orange zest, a pinch of salt. Some vanilla and pepper too. Finally coconut shavings and some ginger.

Finish

The spices linger, followed by salt and green apples.

Comments

When it comes to Old Pulteney, I just can't help myself. I find it simply delicious, apparently at any age.

Nose

Burnt orange zest (if you've ever ordered a cocktail you'll know what I mean), some brown sugar. Cloves and nutmeg. Spicy aroma. 

Taste

Liquorice, salt, clementine, candies with citrus taste. Some ginger and pepper as well. 

Finish

Sweet & sour (however, more sweet), pepper, orange-candy, clementines again. A little, little hint of pepper in the finish as well. 

Comments

Unfortunately the nose was a lot worse than the initial whisky. It seemed unbalanced. But both mouth and finish very enjoyable.
