Whisky Reviews for Old Pulteney 21-year-old

9 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.38 points

  1. lustaufwhisky scored this whisky 91 points Expert Junior

    Nose: An unbelievable variety of flavors, green apples, peach, cherry, pineapple, orange peel and citrus fruits, a fresh mint note and a fine spice paired with oak, clove and nutmeg, even a slight saltiness comes through again and again. •

    Taste: Oily and incredibly mouth-filling, the fruit becomes exotic, followed by marzipan and dark nut chocolate, a grassy note appears, as is a pleasant ginger flavor

    Finish: creamy sweet and then drying with a hint of dark chocolate with coffee beans.

    Head and shoulders above the 17yo https://www.whiskybase.com/whiskies/whisky/96967/old-pulteney-17-year-old. More depth and body with a stronger and more robust finish.

    Noise; brine, light toffy, vanilla, musty leather with sea-salt air and some cooked oranges..

    Palate; thick sticky salty toffy, strong vanilla, marmalade, light coffee, milk chocolate with old mustiness and spice that lingers.

    Finish; medium long with old cloves, old honey, apple, cinnamon, with light caramel and medium spice that pushes through on the end.

    An excellent scotch that is a bargain for the quality at what is still a reasonable price point.

    Of those whiskys where the saturation is off scale, tasty and thoughtful, I would give over 21 years old, you can sit over a glass

    I loved it, but this whisky would really win to be raw! 88 + / 89 -
    • Nose
      very fine, very fruity, a little iodine, on the pear, the wax. He reminds me of a good Clynelish. A subtle whisky.
    • Taste
      Very easy, you can drink liters! Iodine, wax, fruit in shambles (apple, pear, cherry plum, plums ...), and a slightly creamy texture.
    • Finish
      Correct for 46% even if we would like more scope. Always iodine, wax, yellow fruits.
