Whisky Reviews for Old Pulteney 17-year-old

36 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.73 points

  1. mosesumike scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    This bottle is always on my shelf. That basically says everything. The PLV is ideal for those who value good craftsmanship. House whisky. PS. he needs time in the glass.
    • Nose
      87 87
      The first thought is: "walk by the sea". Then comes immediately a strikingly salty caramel profile. The nose is very restrained but who takes the time to find all the subtleties in it. Honeydew melon. Sweet and malty. Also exotic fruits, especially banana. Lime peels in lemon yogurt. Delicious !
    • Taste
      89 89
      He starts very fruity with dark pepper. He keeps what his nose promised. Now comes vanilla and lemons, followed by salty caramel. Almonds in honey jar seduce the palate. Even a candied apple is still going through. Very tasty.
    • Finish
      88 88
      Medium to long, he holds the salty peppery note and the caramel-like fruits. A very light woody dryness but combines very harmoniously the finale. I have to refill, no question.

  3. praisethepasta scored this whisky 89 points Expert Junior

    This was love at first dram and it quickly became one of my favorite sub € 100 whiskies. As my last bottle is nearing empty, I'm on the look out for a replacement while they're still around. They are being discontinued in 2017-2018, sadly...

  4. praisethepasta scored this whisky 89 points Expert Junior

    A beautiful, soft and a bit delicate whisky that needs just a bit of water to reach its full potential, resulting in a great harmonious balance of flavours. 89 -90 points
    • Nose
      An intriguing combination of salty tones, stewed apples and melon. After adding water the salty notes dominate some more, but I picked up  lovely elements  of apple cake, almonds, walnut and hazelnuts. Very promising
    • Taste
      In the arrival the nose continues, with some nut oil joining the party. A party that only just starts after adding  water (and another 15 - 20 minutes of your patience): such a rich, well balanced combo of taste and flavours while at the same time being delicate in the way it presents itself. Everything just starts to blossom now. The balance between the salty and sweet notes is accompanied by some marzipan and almonds, all coated in a velvety texture which dances in your mouth.
    • Finish
      medium long, a bit sticky with licorice (the chewing wood kind). With water it becomes less sticky but it lasts longer, with some oily notes (nut oil and a bit syrupy).

  8. Butei scored this whisky 86 points Expert Junior

    Excellent whisky, even better for this price. For me it is a bit too sweet, but still I do love it.

  9. paulmalt scored this whisky 85 points Member Senior

    I prefer the nose to the taste, where I wish the salty side was a little more in the background.
    • Nose
      sweet & sour strawberries, little bit coastal/salt, herbs, light flower honey, little bit of grappa
    • Taste
      In your mouth and when you swallow: honey, banana, pineapple/peach mix, floral, bit coastal. After swallowing the salty side grows with the sweetness hanging in.
    • Finish
      sweetness fading away before the salt.
