Whisky Reviews for Old Pulteney 1995 GM

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.03 points

  1. thijs100 scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    My first sherried Old Pulteney is a winner. Dark and intense with a nice coastal edge.
    • Nose
      The trademark saltiness of Old Pulteney is definitely here. Then the sherry takes over. Coffee, varnish and old wood. Coconut too. After a while the aromas get sweeter with plums and fudge.
    • Taste
      Salt and pepper on the arrival. But they quickly make place for plums, chocolate and dark caramel. Also some almond paste and mocha. Some sharp edges here, but highly enjoyable.
    • Finish
      Chocolate, a lot of it. Long and satisfying.

    WITHOUT WATER:

    floral notes.

    Palate: A subtle hint of spice, rounded, sweet and fruity. Green apples and

    Nose: Some gin influences. Defined malty notes - some wholemeal flour

    influences linger. With a fresh and fruity edge.

    Palate: An initial hint of spice - ground pepper, with a pronounced fruity edge.

    Some hazelnut and a subtle dark chocolate note.

    Body: Medium.

    Finish: Long.
