Whisky Reviews for Old Pulteney 2008 SV

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.97 points

  1. Amaliana scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Thick and sweet like syrup is the first thought
    Then it gets oily, sweet and at the same time a bit salty, exactly what I like about Pulteney
    Fresh rolls at the bakery on Saturday morning
    I like to eat a pretzel stick with butter and honey in the morning ????
    Exactly like that ????
    I can still find ripe apricots, caramel at the end
    Great stuff I think I need another one for bad times ????????????

    • Nose
      89 89
      The nose reveals that something sweet, jam or syrup is coming soon. Strawberries and then it becomes slightly mineral, mussels, lime.
      The alcohol is very well integrated.

      Water adds a little mint, the finish goes back and the actual distillate comes more into focus. Lastly, wood polish in the distance and some brown sugar.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Here, too, at the beginning syrup, strawberry jam, dried cherries, then heat.

      That was too much water, it can't take much and gets thin quickly. Again from the beginning.
      Slightly bitter wood notes and warm toast are added.
    • Finish
      88 88
      First sweet, but quite short, then hot, spicy and surprisingly dry.

    water thins everything down, so it is best avoided
    • Nose

      sweet sherry fruits, honey and brown sugar.. quite simple, really, but nothing offends.
    • Taste
      88 88
      sweet and caramel-latte salty.. syrup-thick, but not syrup-sweet.. very nice snd warming, coating the mouth.. more tasty, than complex, but that was to be expected
    • Finish
      87 87
      spicy, dry and a small bitter note to compensate for the sweetness in the taste make for a harmonious and very drinkable dram.. the sweet and salty combination echoes for a long time!
