  1. Eilean a' Cheo scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    Very aromatic and nicely coastal, clearly shows the distillery's character. A very nice spring, early-summer dram.

    • Nose
      Floral with white rose petals,herbs,bread with cow butter and honey,coastal,lemon sorbet,apricots.

      With water more herbs and more whole grain bread.
    • Taste
      Sweet and salty, floral, lemon, vanilla ice cram with maple syrup.

      With water sweeter more fruits and more of those aromatic herbs towards the finish.
    • Finish
      Aromatic with old pulteney's trademark salinity.

  3. Feusi scored this whisky 93 points Connoisseur

    Honey and herbs in the nose, so sweet and pleasant. Lemony vanilla sponge cake with a fruity taste. A summer meadow in the evening. Vanilla in a sweet long finish, honey from beginning until the end.

  5. ctu scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Light, hard to scoring, typical salty OP character. Despite the high ABV is a bit modest finish.
    • Nose
      Surprisingly floral. Honey and citrus. Touch of salt and herbals. Over time a bit of camphor and menthol.
    • Taste
      Creamy, sweet, salty. Vanilla, grape, sponge cake with jam and citruses. Simple but great.
    • Finish
      Medium length, salty, fruity.

  7. Willie JJ scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    This is better than I remembered. Also I don't think I watered it the
    last time and that definitely helps the malt and floral aromas to come
    • Nose
      Citrus, grapey, floral. Malt and salt. water makes it very floral.
    • Taste
      Big salty hit, malt and lemon. Water definitely lifts that salt intensity. Makes this very easy pleasant drinking.
    • Finish
      Amazing salt crystallising on the palate. Hot finish at full strength.
      Water kills the heat and allows the malt to shine through.
