    Definately not a standard Old Pulteney.  A drop or two of water really helps this one out. Hugely complex and very interesting dram with a really hot and nice visceral finish.
    • Nose
      Red apples and buttered toast. Sawdust and rich vanilla cake! After a few minutes of breathing it opens up a bit more for old books and musty lounge.
    • Taste
      Rather thin, but warm. Hints of dried apricot and slight tobacco. Ginger, black tea and slight honied fruit. Slightest peat and a little bitter but overcome by raisins. Hints of nice stone fruit and a little ashy on the delivery. 
    • Finish
      Very hot. It tastes considerably stronger than 53%. Lasts for a long while and sits right on the top of the mouth. Golden barley shines through right at the end.
