    I do not really remember anymore if Sherry and Old Pulteney fit together, is always slightly contradictory, is somehow delicious, but not quite round.
    • Nose
      Quite edgy sherry, dusty, but sticky, behind nice touches of blood orange, orange bitters, linen sacks, brown malt, some fresh rye bread, brown sugar, cocoa powder, nutmeg, some clove, dusty leather
    • Taste
      First comes directly with a lot of dark malt, then light raisins, some grapefruit, rye bread, cloves and nutmeg, cinnamon, cocoa powder, thyme and oregano, dusty leather, some tobacco, herbal honey, a little salt in between
    • Finish
      Salt and pepper, rye bread, clove and nutmeg, malt, tannins and middle-aged oak, dry-salty, long

  7. Hare&Copper scored this whisky 75 points Expert Senior

    Nose is awful. Taste is a bit better. 
    • Nose
      Husky. Cheesy. Notes of yeast and sick. 
    • Taste
      Musty. More butric notes. Becomes sweeter later.
    • Finish
      Short.

  8. Tommyknocker scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    A pleasing but unfortunately also very characterless Old Pulteney which is stuck somewhere in the sherry barrel. Could have been a young, unspectacular Glenfarclas.
    • Nose
      Sherry, rather raw, immature, very sticky sweet. The maritime touch of the OR is unfortunately completely covered. Much more will not come then.
    • Taste
      Very pleasant, also here pretty honey-sweet start, some spices and raisins. No salt, no sea, nothing from OP.
    • Finish
      Medium long, sweet
