  2. thijs100 scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Almost never über-complex or super-polished, like it's brethren, this single cask Old Pulteney delivers. Not the best I've had from 1997, but still really good.
    • Nose
      Sweet at first, with notes of vanilla, cookie dough, and ripe banana. However, it becomes a lot more acidic after a few minutes. Think lemon custard, with a touch of wet pebbles, as well as lime zest. Finally, a touch of burlap.
    • Taste
      A creamy mouthfeel, with an intensely nutty arrival, followed by chalk, chili pepper, lots of lemon peel, and a pinch of salt.
    • Finish
      More of the above. Medium in length.

    On the nose, salty atmosphere with vanilla, a little lemon, some spices and breadcrumbs!
    • Nose
      vanilla and lemon acid, white pepper, a little salt and custard, then return ripe banana!

    Review of tested.be: Nose: Sea salt, nuts, vanilla, pepper, banana, almond, malt, orange and mandarin. Does very hot. Taste: Sweet, almond, marzipan, banana, mandarin, farmer's tongue. Nadronk: Pepper, nuts, vanilla, banana, walnut, orange and farm tongue. Very warm. Notes: This whisky is as tasty as it is quirky. Very tasty. A savory nose, more sweet taste to return to a savory aftertaste. And yet he manages to keep the necessary balance. This is 'the good stuff'.
