  3. tomy63 scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    straw color, very vanilla nose, lemony, cereals. Better on the palate, quite lively and powerful, with a slightly sweet side, vanilla, no caramel here, and more and more salt. Final of good length, very iodized, acidulated. Not much less freshness than in the Flotilla, less roundness, but more iodine and a little more powerful.

  4. KayMeertens scored this whisky 85 points Specialist

    More fruity, more malty and more vanilla than the 2nd release, plus a bit more punch due to its higher ABV.
    • Nose
      Vanilla sugar, coconut, honey, marzipan, malt, citrus, kiwi, salt, earth and floral notes.
    • Taste
      Marzipan, vanilla, lime, liquorice, malt, apricots, hazelnut, coconut, white chocolate, berries, citrus and iodine.
    • Finish
      Almonds, nut oil, vanilla, lime and green apple.

  5. AlecM scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Nose: vanilla and demerara sugar.

    Taste: slightly tart and fruity - apricots and peaches.

    Finish: trademark salt on the finish.

    Possibly my favourite OP from the ones I`ve tried.

    A collectors item!

  8. mmaclean scored this whisky 79 points Connoisseur

    The nose is nice, vanilla, vibrant fruit. Taste, more vanilla, oily, butterscotch. Body, is well balanced and not to much alcohol. Finish is dry, subtle, then expands into something to remember. Not sure on the price and the container is typical OP.

  9. mmaclean scored this whisky 79 points Connoisseur

    Incredible story, had the chance to go let a friend taste the Tun 1401 #3 Balvenie and she in turn pulled this bottle out that I friend of hers brought to let her taste. It was a win win for everyone. Fantastic

  10. Collector57 scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    A NAS offering for TR only, but at 52% it's a little like a souped-up 12yo. I like this and the bottle, that I opened on 26 Sep when TH came to visit, is nearly empty. Personally I find a little water improves it.
    • Nose
      Vanilla and coconut immediately, and also very fruity. Exotic fruits behind the coconut - maybe some lime? Not as salty as I expect from Pulteney, but none the worse for that. Quite fragrant.
    • Taste
      Again the vanilla and coconut. Carries the nose through into the palate. Slightly oily I feel. Some toffee notes (English toffees). A little more of the brininess I expect on the palate than there was on the nose.
      After a while, the fruit comes through the coconut.
    • Finish
      Slightly dry, in nice contrast to the sweetness of the coconut on the palate. Quite a lasting finish that now begins to show some spice from the oak.
