Absolutely ingenious apart vllt. from the length of the departure, OP SC are just bomb, at least all I had so far!
Typically Old Pulteney, first quite closed, but happens once at a SC at that age, then come the typical apple in the background, red and green, pear, orange, some cream, finest salt, slightly smoky resin, then the pear comes back
An absolute bomb, I had 3 older OP SCs and they were all incredible, obviously I have to put one, pear in a brine, grapefruit, bitter orange, green apple, then red apple, resin notes, herbal honey, brown sugar, oak chips
Astringent, grapefruit, a few grapes, bitter orange, green apple, resin, herbal honey, brown sugar, dry-salty with acid fruits, medium length
Something for enjoyment - just a real Old Pulteney in the Bourbon barrel is expanded. The salty and peppery notes dominate. Oily, full bodie. With water it becomes even rounder and unfolds its full taste.
The high alcohol content gives this whisky inner movement; some water makes its already strong fruitiness stand out more clearly, further addition of water leads to reassurance: no drink - an experience!
Fruit salad for beach picnic: apple, pear, orange and some banana, carried by subtle vanilla, lively and dynamic, with some pine resin and a strong sea breeze.
The same as in the nose, supplemented by a generous dollop of whipped cream.
Sea breeze: short, strong and tingling, leaving salty bitterness behind.
