Scotland > Highland > Scotch and Other Whiskies > Single Malt > Old Pulteney
The 12 year old is matured in exclusive Ex-Bourbon American oak casks and bottled at 40%. The Old Pulteney bottle strongly portrays the herring fishing heritage of Wick, the home town of Pulteney Distillery. This well priced single malt scotch is dry and 'boney'. Medium bodied and smooth, it is clean and very easy to drink.
Andrew's Tasting Note
Nose: honey and salted caramel, very malty with musty old oak; big candied orange and ginger with cinnamon sticks; reminds me a little of a Manhattan.
Palate: creamy, malty, fresh and a tad briny; more salted caramel, candied orange and ginger, cinnamon sticks and some maraschino cherry; both the nose and palate have me thinking Manhattan.
Finish: light, clean, malty and maritime with fading spices and orange.
Comment: fresh, honeyed and salty, this whisky is excellent bang for the buck.
Distiller's Tasting Note
Nose: Medium to high intensity with a briny hint of sea air.
Palate: Dry, medium bodied and smooth, redolent of honey and cream, faintly salty with a slight spicy note and a sweet long-lasting finish.
