  2. StyrianSpirit scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    With a little water, the 12-year-old in the nose noticeably vanilla-sweet, on the palate and the finish changes except the noticeably softer onset (thank God!) Not too much. This malt does not need water in my opinion, because with a little patience, all flavors are also present without a presence and the dense total arrangement is what makes this excellent Pulteney.
    • Nose
      Very dense and fine. A wonderful herbal note with some marjoram, a little damp moss, behind you can already feel the fruits. This is not a malt that immediately beats the bourbon cask vanilla sweetness around your ears. The scent is very dense and fine, as already mentioned. The longer you smell it, the more aromas appear on the horizon. The alcohol seems to be an excellent staple that holds it all together without attracting attention for a second.
    • Taste
      Wonderful - now the fruitiness is there, in addition to the bright grapes, I also have juicy dark berries on the palate. Of course, vanilla, a little cinnamon, pepper. Delicate and slightly oak, and then the salt spray emerges.
    • Finish
      The ending changes from the Pulteney-Maritimität - yes, that's it, and here she is present in the most beautiful! - with a pleasant oak to the light and dark fruits, back to spicy. I am pleased.

  3. Cipidos scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    A sweet honey nose. While the taste has also some pineapple and toffee. A long salty finish.

  6. Igor scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    A dollop of water releases the fragrances, makes the texture smoother, sparing your taste buds thereby. You can drink it either neat or with water, it's up to you. This dram will work fine in both cases.
    • Nose
      Engaging and refreshing, with natural sweetness of succulent tropical fruits. Juicy pineapple, lemonade, passion fruit, persimmon?, cocoa beans and dried sultanas.
    • Taste
      Citrussy nip, hot zest, orange, sour tangerine, ascorbic acid tablets. Balanced very well, indeed.
    • Finish
      Punchy, salty, liquorice wheels? (sweets), aniseed, red pepper, cardamom seeds, grapefruit, orange rind.

  7. QuarterCentury did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    A 1998 vintage whisky from the Pulteney distillery, home of Old Pulteney
    whisky, bottled by Gordon Macphail at cask strength. This matured in
    first fill bourbon casks before bottling in August 2011, one day shy of
    its 13th birthday.
