Whisky Reviews for Old Pulteney 2008 vW

5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 81.00 points

  1. Abadon05 scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    So here is the strong influence of the barrel. There is hardly any trace of the Brennereicharakter but that does not matter. The banana in combination with the salt is a great combination. We recommend.
    • Nose
      Some coconut and then boom comes the banana. But something like that. Then some grape and a sweet as well as salt. Very cool.
    • Taste
      Salt, honey, grape, some vanilla and caramel with marshmallows
    • Finish
      Short to medium.

    Pulteney 2008-2015, 6 years, 46% alc.van Wees (The Ultimate) Pulteney 2008-2015, 6 years, 46% alc.
    Bottler: van Wees (The Ultimate)
    Extension: Bourbon Barrel (actually Tennessee, since the barrel is from Jack Daniel's) No. 800001
    Region: Highlands, Scotland

    Nose: Mild earthy, salty, maritime. Behind it come hay meadow, mineral aromas, mango and various culinary herbs. Also paprika is to be heard in the nose.

    Palate: First as water, then much drier. Slightly mineral and salty, a mild aroma of malt and rye, some toffee and pepper.

    Finish: medium length, sea salt, pepper and a slightly bitter sweetness.

    Conclusion: Simple, young but already harmonious.

    Mweh, this was not nice. Better take a Pulteney 12 ob for 10 euros less.
