Nose
Raisins, citrus peel, smoke. Mince pies in front of a log fire. Black bun.
Palate
Marshmallow maltiness. Treacle toffee. Long, slow flavour development.
Finish
Hefty sherry.
Comment
The hug of sherry is soporific; the saltiness a stinging reviver. A morning run in Wick; a gale in John O'Groats.

Dave Broom

70
Nose
Filled with wood-derived aromas. Sherried, oaky, sulphur, singed wool. Meaty, oily.
Palate
Sherried(!). Some sweet, oily spirit struggling to free itself from the oaky clamp. Water loosens the grip a little.
Finish
Oak.
Comment
A shame. Pulteney is a weighty enough spirit to cope with European oak. Not this time though!
