Old Pulteney 25 YO
Old Pulteney 25 YO, 46 %
OK, let's do one more Old Pulteney review. Here is the Old Pulteney 25 YO, launched in September 2017. This whisky has been matured for 22 years in American oak casks, and then finished for three years in ex-Oloroso sherry Spanish oak butts.
Nose: Vanilla, cookie dough, white pepper, sea salt and apples. A touch of acidity - orange zest me thinks. Cinnamon, dark chocolate, old books and the dusty attic of an old wooden house. It just keeps developing, twisting and turning, teasing and tickling. Delightful.
Taste: Very smooth, very rich and full of body. It does roll very elegantly over the tongue. Honey still, creamy, white pepper.
Finish: Long finish. Toffee and coffee. Dark chocolate. Gradually more green, green grass and hay. Herbal notes also. A touch salty, as expected, but less so than the younger expressions.
Comments: Just love it.
