    Old Pulteney 1980 - 2011, approx. 31 years, 43% alc.
    Bottler: Gordon & MacPhail
    Expansion: Ex-Bourbon barrels
    Region: Highlands, Scotland
    ...
    Nose: Complex with a light freshness, slightly leathery with aromas of barley malt, sweet-and-sweet. Behind it light roasted aromas and vanilla pudding. Honey notes are also found, something heath.

    Palate: Sweetish and malty, then a light touch of oak, creamy character. All in all, very pleasant.

    Finish: Rather short, with spices and oak

    Conclusion: A nice Pulteney with older age. recommendable

    Tasting Notes by SCOMA: 

    Aroma: Fresh and fragrant with hints of barley sugar. Vanilla extract aromas arise and defined sweetness and honey notes linger.

    Taste: Sweet with flavors of spice mixture. A breath of sea air (sea water).

    Finish: Short and subtle.
