Whisky Reviews for Old Pulteney Pentland Skerries
23 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 83.00 points
- Solid. Tasty with prints in terms of artificiality. 79 points.
Pleasantly nutty sherry nose. Grapes. Some perfume. Occasionally alcohol stings.
Sweet. Oak comes immediately after. Tobacco announces. Honey. Sweet and spicy dessert. The second sip is a bit bitter.
Medium long, sweetish with perfume.
- Color: darker gold Nose: prunes, dried apricots, light sulfur, very light smoke. Rather shy. Definitely maritime. The alcohol is well integrated. Palate: Very dry, which I personally like. Again dried fruits and sulfur. Old, but not gammeliges wood. He does not look youthful. There is also something that reminds me of an old Armenian brandy.
Finish: long with dry sherry, wine tasting and wood. Conclusion: Maybe a bit overpriced, but good to very good and independent.
- Not a big boom, but the value for money is ok.
Sherry, salted caramel, raisin, honey, citruses and spicy oak.
Powerful, oily and spicy. Raisin, salted caramel and orange peel.
Medium length, spicy with citruses.
- An interesting variation of an OP, somehow it does not fit 100% but it's still tasty, the finish is nice and the own notes and mixture of salt, sherry and others are exciting.
For a Pulteney of course very gesherried, light raisins, while clear acid, sour cherries boiled, honey, toffee and a little green apple, typical of surgery, are also in between, then a pinch of salt, brown sugar and some leather
Here, too, clearly the light raisins in the foreground and onset, lots of sweet toffee and darker honey, green apple, sour cherries, some white pepper, brown sugar, salt, treated leather, some light tobacco, peach
Salt and pepper, tannins and oak, honey, raisins and unripe plums, long
- At first I really enjoyed this bottle but the further down the bottle the less impressive it was.
Raisins, cinnamon spice, dark chocolate, coffee beans, some salted caramel notes. Lower down the bottle the sherry notes no longer dominate, they fall to the background with the maritime taking over. Sea breeze, sharper on the nose. Bit honey coming through, a more pulteney nose here, similar to pulteney 12. Brown sugar cake. Little smoke coming through.
Raisins is at the forefront, the spice warms up the tongue and makes this one interesting. The palate is coastal, a lot more sea and salt notes coming through with a little unsweetened raisin. Half way down the bottle, the raisins aren’t there, the spice and warmth still hold strong though.
Short finish with lots of maritime notes and some coffee beans.
- The Pentland Skerries from the whisky-Nosingglas is incredibly backaromas and cherry-sweet, complemented by malt, juniper and nuttiness. This malt really has a few off-flavor components and is ideal for all "sweet sherry brothers and sisters".
The full sweetness (raisins, a few still hard-to-define artificial flavors, cherry), baked flavors, malt, a little Nussigkeit and of course Sherry comes to meet me. Juniper and some mint are also present.
In the mouth this Pulteney comes oily and slightly tingling. The maltiness is again in the foreground, followed by the enormous cherry and raisin sweetness, dry sherry and also on the palate, the juniper announces, later followed by a slight nuttiness. The typical "maritime Pulteney notes" (light salt, a little kelp, spicy oak) are missing.
The finale is medium long and again characterized by the now malty fruit and sherry notes. In the end, the whole thing goes on to something bitter chocolate.
- At first, a weird honey with hints of beer and a pseudo-peat mineral. Disconcerting and rather unpleasant. Beer notes gradually diminish to the "profit" of a rather monolithic caramel. On the palate, metallic bitterness at first sip. It is more balanced afterwards. Spices, a bit spicy, even stiff. It's young all that ...
