Whisky Reviews for Old Pulteney 17-year-old
19 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.74 points
- Compared to the 21er has the more oak. And looks a little less elegant and balanced. Nevertheless, the beautiful Old Pulteney freshness (fruits and maritime notes) is included. I really like it too. In comparison to the new 15er, he looks much older. At the 21er but he is not quite ran. For that he lacks a bit of complexity.
- He's fun. A very delicious whisky, beautiful strong oak notes and a strong maltiness creates a depth and complexity that is rounded off by the honey. Great
Immediately there is malty sweetness in the room, some dark bread, citrus notes, some ginger, the oak is already in the nose, strong herbal notes, a little musty, honey, vanilla and caramel
strong malty, caramel, honey, oak, some herbs and then it goes into the long finish
The beautiful oak notes swing in the finish and in addition the malty and honoring notes again and again
- 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.
- 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.
Saturated, dense, mineral-lemonade, in the background notes of dried fruits and cream tones.
Rich, spicy oak, orange peels, ginger, cream, fondant, toffee, light salty.
Ginger-orange (crusts), warming, spicy, in the background - creamy notes.
- gentle aromas, very one-dimensional 80 out of 100 points
soft smell, soft pear, summer cereals, some marzipan yes, there is not so much left
in the beginning sweet bright yellow fruit apricot / pear pleasantly sweet, a little almond, more like a very mild good schnapps
Medium, weak, sweet, bright fruit, boring
- 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.
In the first impression very clear, intense, sherrytönig. (Reminds me of Glenfarclas 21y.)
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.
An intense finish. In the end, actually a bit sourish apple. / With a little water, a gentle, medium-long finish convinces.
- He smells great, oak, without any irritation. The Spanish and American oak blend perfectly. Spicy, strong, a campfire whisky.
