    Old Pulteney 12 yo 2001
    (49,2%, The Whisky Agency & The Nectar 2013, bourbon cask, 351 btl.)

    Nose: a mineral profile. Chalk, graphite, wet cloths. Unripe fruits (apple, peach). Some seaweed. Hints of pencil shavings. Slight floral notes. Overall a little closed. After a while a candied white fruit note comes out. Mouth: surprisingly sweet, with a young fruitiness (apple liqueur, apricot, grapefruit) but also a nice praline / almond sweetness. Lemon candy. Dark honey. Still a few coastal / briny notes in the background. Liquorice. Finish: long, with lemony notes and the warmer praline.

    A fine dram, combining the typically coastal Old Pulteney character with a few warmer notes. Nothing special either. Around € 85.

    Score: 83/100

    tasting by SV: Old Pulteney 12 yo 2001/2013 (49.2%, The Whisky Agency and The Nectar, barrel, 351 bottles)  Is that Alice on the label? Are we in Wonderland with this little Pulteney? Colour: white wine. Nose: we’re back on a style that’s very much akin to that of the Jean Boyer, with naked orchard fruits at first nosing (green apples first), also flowers from the fields, but then there’s more mandarin and touches of bread and baker’s yeast. I seem to detect a wee sea breeze too, but I may be dreaming. What’s sure is that this baby is very fresh and clean. Mouth: I like this, it makes me think of the official 17 at times. Drops of brine in a fruit salad (plums, oranges, apples, grapes) with a mild spiciness and a little light honey. What I call ‘breakfast honey’. Maybe also a touch of chalk. Finish: medium length. A little more barleyish and slightly yeasty again, but it’s all fine. Something slightly burnt in the aftertaste, maybe. Comments: rather clean and crisp, so very Pulteney. SGP:542 - 85 points.
