  1. MikeVictor scored this whisky 91 points Expert Junior

    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.
