Cracking nose, with plenty of ripe fruits (strawberries, pears, apples and citrus fruits) encased in rich clotted cream. And yet, the trademark coastal nose (fresh, salty sea air) I associate with Pulteney still manages to make its presence felt, especially after addition of a couple of drops of water. Hints of vanilla, creme brûlée, hazelnuts, old leather and something faintly herbal also linger in the background. Creamy notes with sweet vanilla initially coat the palate, with lively chilli and pepper notes coming through later (perhaps lacking ever so slightly in complexity), leading to a long, warming and creamy finish. Great cask selection (yet again!) from Cadenhead.
