  1. el Gato scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Quite impressed with the nose on this one. A lot of distillate remains. Taste more sherry and christmas notes. Yet overall, an enjoyable dram

      Deep apricot and pear notes, desert like. Eventually sawmill, christmas cake, ginger, chalk, minerals. Even soft peat and menthoø eventually.

      Thick and almost sticky texture. Still the deep fruits from the nose. Christmas cake and spices. Ginger and red berries. Hints of orange.

      Long and a bit jammy. Menthol, cardomom. Still strong and some sting. The sherry and christmas style continues. Still very strong, and hints of metal.

    According to the visitor's center staff, this is the first ever single sherry cask release by Old Pulteney.

    Old Pulteney stores all their barrels on site and because of their location on the seaside they pick up a maritime flavour during the maturation process. I noticed this in what I would describe as a salty, licorice finish. The body of the whisky tasted of red fruits. It does need time to 'open up'. Perhaps as much a an hour (time I didn't have during tasting).

    In short, a whisky with a unique flavour, that tastes older (more rounded) than it is.
