Whisky Reviews for Old Pulteney 17-year-old

17 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.58 points

  1. Whiskywobbler scored this whisky 88 points Expert Junior

    I find less sherry than I did in the 12 years and the 17 years have moved a few spots up the ladder, with more complexity, more maturity and just more quality.

  2. Calmar scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    The elder brother of 12, the same style, adjusted for age, added fortress and sherry barrels; minimalistic, but strong and recognizable base overgrown with additional sherry shades, acquired depth and power, and also kept quite an attractive price for whisky of this age and quality.
    • Nose
      Saturated, dense, mineral-lemonade, in the background notes of dried fruits and cream tones.
    • Taste
      Rich, spicy oak, orange peels, ginger, cream, fondant, toffee, light salty.
    • Finish
      Ginger-orange (crusts), warming, spicy, in the background - creamy notes.

  4. ASWhisky scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    gentle aromas, very one-dimensional 80 out of 100 points
    • Nose
      soft smell, soft pear, summer cereals, some marzipan yes, there is not so much left
    • Taste
      in the beginning sweet bright yellow fruit apricot / pear pleasantly sweet, a little almond, more like a very mild good schnapps
    • Finish
      Medium, weak, sweet, bright fruit, boring

  5. StyrianSpirit scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    A very bright, "sparkling" malt with a pleasant "maritime touch". / A few drops of H2O make the 17-year-old (in contrast to the 21-year-old Old Pulteney) in my opinion even more interesting.
    • Nose
      In the first impression very clear, intense, sherrytönig. (Reminds me of Glenfarclas 21y.)
    • Taste
      Very nice, sharper start. Not alcoholic, but chilli-ish. The second sip of oak is added. / With a few drops of water very flowery, the mixture of light and dark fruits becomes more intense. Nevertheless, pleasant chill in the mouth.
    • Finish
      An intense finish. In the end, actually a bit sourish apple. / With a little water, a gentle, medium-long finish convinces.

  7. maltaholic scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    He smells great, oak, without any irritation. The Spanish and American oak blend perfectly. Spicy, strong, a campfire whisky.

     L11:

    Fruity and spicy aroma, red apples, pear, cardamom, nutmeg, peat, malt, vanilla and floral honey. Vanilla sweet taste, pepper, mint, orange, nutmeg, walnuts and malt. Medium long, fruity and malty end.
