      IT: 89 beautifully round and spread all over the tongue, great!
      B: 88 in the body sweet, salty and peppery - the typical Old Pulteney notes are now emerging.

    SMWS Tasting Notes: A dense and creamy nose! Custard creams, cream horns, Sauternes drizzled over quivering custard puddings and notes of butter, lychee and some squirty cream from a bottle. There's also coastal wildflowers, sandalwood, Fruit Chew sweeties and some tart cider apple notes. With water there's peached pears in syrup, mashed banana on granary toast, sweet old cider, fondant icing and banana liqueur with faint note of linseed oil and smoked lemon rind. The palate is similarly sweet and viscous but balanced by some grippy tannin and a wonderfully dense texture. Notes of petrol, glycerol, slated caramel, tonka beans and a fatty vanilla note. Reduction offers notes of golden sultanas, mincemeat, orange peel, pink grapefruit, Earl Grey tea and some citric tartness to keep things lively. Matured for 11 years in a bourbon hogshead before being transferred to a first-fill Sauternes barrique.
