  1. Abadon05 scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Great nose and also the taste to please. For me personally but too much seasoning and unfortunately the dry finish costs a lot of points.
    But still for a NAS whisky a great selection and quite untypical for Pulteney.
    • Nose
      86 86
      Slight magical notes, but not unpleasant. However, a significant spiciness.
      Dark berries, dark forest and acacia honey, with lots of salt. Cinnamon, light forest smell in the rain. Minimal strawberry notes.
      I definitely like it.
    • Taste
      84 84
      Only mild, then pushes the spice and that clearly.
      Oranges, pepper, the honey gets a bit lighter.
    • Finish
      82 82
      Short to medium. But now comes a significant spice.
      Dry.
      Too bad, the finish takes away all the sweetness.
      With time comes some sea salt.

    2cl at a tasting last Saturday. It has more to offer than the current ratings of 81+ points suggest. A good full not overly sherried dram that leaves enough Pulteney to taste.

    The nose is good, body is disappointing, and then it recovers again in the finish. Strange lack of balance. Nice to experience.
    • Nose
      84 84
      Nice sherry note, spicy, cinnamon. Honey, hay, moss, chocolate as well, autumn forest.
    • Taste
      82 82
      Pepper, spicy, cinnamon. Oranges, honey, a bit pale and thin underneath which is pretty sad. Milkchocolate as well.
    • Finish
      84 84
      A bit of pepper, sweet, honey, orange, milkchocolate. Middle long. The thin feeling is gone now, pretty warming actually.

    The nose is nice, but that's it... 80/81.
    • Nose
      81 81
      Sherry, vegetables, antique skin, honey, vanilla and salty caramel. Low sulfur and phosphorus.
    • Taste
      80 80
      Thin and bittersweet. Candied orange peel, salted caramel and spicy cooked vegetables.
    • Finish
      81 81
      Medium length, salty, spicy, dry.

    Ralfy review 364: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mnIM_TDHrCw (85/100).

    "It's a simple whisky, it doesn't have huge complexity, but it's got a richness and a delightful rounded quality syrupy substance and interesting natural youthful complexity."
