I would place Old Pulteney 12 in the same category as Oban 14. The similar saltiness, less smokiness, seemed familiar. Also agree about the Scapa 12 similarities, i think I liked Scapa better. Need to revisit that one. I've been hoping the OP12 salt would tame down a bit, but with the bottle open now for 228 days it still has a brittle harshness that doesn't really... went and poured a small taste just to confirm; does nose similar to Glenmorangie 10, and the taste starts off fine, but that salty (slightly aspirin) finish just grows clingy. A good malt to explore, in fact I have another bottle waiting and maybe it will be of a different beast altogether.
