Whisky Reviews for Old Pulteney 1990

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.40 points

  1. Mascht scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    A fantastic Olt Pulteney enchants you with its soft vanilla notes and complex spiciness
    • Nose
      90 90
      sweet at first, vanilla, dusty, complex but still slightly closed, with time and with a few drops of water it releases notes of tropical fruits like pineapple and bananas, as well as sour flavors like sourdough, gooseberries, green apples, herbs and coconut, slightly maritime and a hint of smoke
    • Taste
      92 92
      oily, velvety, mouth-filling and astringent, lime and vanilla dominate, with bitter almonds and honey gingerbread, wonderfully spicy
    • Finish
      91 91
      very long, vanilla, a delicate spiciness from the oak and frankincense remain

  2. theograph scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    A grand old Pulteney! Not extremely spectacular because of special flavors but just wonderfully soft and balanced. In fact a brilliant whisky!
    • Nose
      Light and soft at the beginning, it follows the so-called "Old Pulteney Muff": maritime, wet, salty and honey, then lemon and a little vanilla, floury or dusty, almonds or marzipan, cardamom and unusual but: myrrh ( Incense);
    • Taste
      Lemon and vanilla, green apples, honey, marzipan, a well-pronounced spiciness - white pepper paired with oak and a subtle acid note, again floury;
    • Finish
      Soft, pleasant, extremely balanced and balanced, almost sweet!
