  1. LeChiffre scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Not really very complex, but still not boring malt. Beautiful sweet and fresh-fruity profile, paired with a peppery spice as an exciting kick. A good malt for the price, but I don't need a large bottle.

    I find him quite successful for beginners, as he is very diverse, but not overwhelmed with excessive alcohol.
    • Nose
      78 78
      First, a heavy, dry smell hits the nose. The second smelling comes with a lot of honey. The alcohol is, in my opinion, barely perceptible.
    • Taste
      84 84
      First, a spice mixture with lots of pepper comes to light. After a short while comes back to the honey with all its sweetness in the mouth. Very rich in contrast.
    • Finish
      80 80
      Rather short and very mild.

  5. Abadon05 scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    All in all, a standard Old Pulteney, which reflects the character of the distillery in large parts.
    The nose could convince much more without the alcoholic stinging.
    Definitely not a bad whisky for this age and for the price. And for under 50 € to get a ten-year whisky, so definitely a prize-winner.
    • Nose
      80 80
      A light alcoholic stinging.
      Then cereal notes and a lot of blossom honey. In the background, the lemon is increasingly coming to the fore. Added to this is vanilla sugar.
      The alcoholic stinging unfortunately decreases only very slowly.
      Minimal hints of milk chocolate.
    • Taste
      81 81
      Not quite as sweet as in the nose. A sparkling lemon paired with cereals. The honey stays in the background. Some apple is added.
      The chocolaty echoes are also very easy to feel
    • Finish
      81 81
      Dry and rather short to medium.
      The sweetness fades, but binds the liveliness, so that no bitterness arises. The lemon and the not sweet honey stick on the tongue.
