8 users have left 8 reviews for this whisky. Average rating is 86.75 points.

  1. Bishlouk scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    The pastry side can be disgusting in the long run. A (small) dram is self-sufficient, I think. Out of there, this Old Pulteney is very good, balanced, greedy; and his young age does not serve him.
    I rate it 86/100, it would have been 87/100 if it had been less disgusting.
    • Nose
      A young, malty nose on the sweet cereal. Honey, vanilla, fluffy frangipane. A very slight sea breeze behind this pastry. Some tingling on the nose, due to alcohol, after aeration.
    • Taste
      The alcohol is particularly well balanced and not offensive. The profile here is also very pasty, on the salted frangipane (the typical marine side of Old Pulteney is fully revealed). Vanilla malt, sweet almond, pinches of salt. And some dried apricots, too.
    • Finish
      Long. The sweet malt melts at first slowly in the mouth, then the salt returns as a reinforcement, accompanied by vanilla.

    Blind tasting

    none for me
    the nose is sweet and OK but the palate and finish are weird
    • Nose
      Sweet, like, slightly fermenting fruit, raspberry, red ahoy froth, black gum, tart, dates?, slightly raisin, sherry is coming

      with water: tart, more sherry with a chemical note
    • Taste
      very oily, strong, full
      Gummie, a note that I cannot name, oak, bitter, spicy, that flowery perfume soap note (bäää), a chemical note

      with water: softer, rounder, more of that perfume soap note, vanilla comes
    • Finish
      tart, bitter, brown banana, coffee

      with water: bitter, espresso

  6. Abadon05 scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Wow the Manzanilla of the North in a Manzanilla Pass. Very cool idea and it tastes the same.
    • Nose
      Sherry, associations with a barrel warehouse, minimal sulfur, dry, salty. A very horny nose.
    • Taste
      Dry and salty. Occupies the whole oral cavity. Reminds me of a port.
    • Finish
      Medium long and dry. But delicious.

    Sample from ovanpuyvelde. Lots of sediment in this OP.

    World Whisky Day 2016
    • Nose
      Citrus, fruity, spices - pepper and chive. This briny touch with some berries and tannins. 
    • Taste
      Fruity - strawberries and rhubarb. Raisins, chocolate and butter scotch.
    • Finish
      Malty, bitter fruits - citrus and briny.
