Note by Serge Valentin from whiskyfun.com:
Old Pulteney ‘Navigator’ (46%, OB, +/-2014) Colour: white wine. Nose: it’s a little more porridgy than the Lighthouses, and less oaky, so rather more spirit-driven, I’d say. Nice freshness, what we should call ‘maritime’, I guess, with even oysters. This, I rather enjoy. A little patchouli, some apples. Mouth: same feeling, this is more complex, fresher, with less sawdust and rather more salt and lemon. Some oranges, and perhaps a little new make. This should be young as well, but at least it’s not ridden with sawdust. Finish: medium, fresh, more on lemonade and spicy coconut sauce. More oak and white pepper in the aftertaste. Comments: feels young, but it’s rather very honest, I’d say.SGP:451 - 79 points.
