    Colour: Pale yellow.
    Nose: Smoky, fishy, salty, strongly maritime, on pear,
    white wine and with a whiff of diesel.
    Taste: Sweet, smoky, salty, maritime,
    grassy, smooth, on pear and seaweed. The finish is medium, sweet, salty,
    maritime and on seaweed. With time, it becomes drier (saltier).
    General
    Impression: A highly drinkable and maritime old Pulteney.

    tasting by SV:Old Pulteney 10 yo 1998/2008 (43%, Jean Boyer, Best Casks of Scotland, recoopered hogshead)  Jean Boyer’s malts are usually crisp and spirit-driven, which is very appreciable. Colour: white wine. Nose: lovely young nose, all on barley and various garden fruits, all rather ripe. Apples, gooseberries… There’s also a little smoke, rather charcoal smoke. No peat. Add to that hints of warm croissants and you’re getting something pretty… err, French. Mouth: there is a wee saltiness in the arrival, then there’s more applejack, cherries, barley and brioche. It’s all very easy, rather sweet, and eminently drinkable. Finish: rather long, sweet, rather more candied now. A little Demerara sugar and plum jam. Comments: good body at just 43% vol. Another fair, loyal, natural and honest malt whisky by Jean Boyer. Nice Pulteneyesque saltiness on the palate. SGP:542 - 83 points.
