  2. Cask1988 did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Upon this day I was one of the lucky ones that was able to say ‘I’ve never had a bad Pulteney’. But these days are over. This is absolutely rubbish.
    • Nose
      My guess is that this was a molded cask. It smells like rotten cheese and a kitchensink that hasn’t been cleaned for a while. Green unripe Banana’s, algae and a bouquet of flowers that has been displayed for too long.
    • Taste
      Dry, sharp, unbalanced. Holy crap this is bad. Alcohol did not integrate at all. I got a feeling on my tongue that is has been desinfected properly.
    • Finish
      1 sip is enough. The rest is for the sink. A weird young bourbonesk taste, again that molded cheese. Boy o boy hopefully the sink won’t spit it back into my face as I will offer it to him in a few...

      This stuff at this strength could have better been used as a hand sanitiser as several Scottish Whisky distilleries Are producing right now due to the Corona virus. I would recommend everyone that still has a bottle of this at home: please donate it to hospitals or care homes for our elderly.
