Old Pulteney

Old Pulteney 12 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
8 A complex and distinctive malt.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Old Pulteney 12 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
8 Forget about the first nose and enjoy that luscious exotic profile. But no water, thank you.

Old Pulteney 12 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
7 A full bowl of stewed and dried fruit. For a breakfast treat?

Old Pulteney 15 Years Old Millennium Edition
Single Malt - Scotland - 0.00%
7 More distillery character than a 15 Years Old identified as “sherry-aged” that I tasted some months ago.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Old Pulteney 15 Years Old, Cask Strength
Single Malt - Scotland - 57.80%
8 A slightly odd melange of flavours and textures...but it works.

Old Pulteney 15 Years Old, Sherry Cask
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
8 If you like whisky on your therapeutic porridge (and who doesn't?) this is the salty one.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Old Pulteney 17 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
8 A great combination of complexity and simplicity. A liquid fruit basket. Yummy.

Whisky Magazine - Editors Choice - Winner

Old Pulteney 17 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
8 An absolute cracker. Delicate, elegant. More than a golden promise. A gem delivery !

Old Pulteney 18 Years Old, Sherrywood, Cask 1498
Single Malt - Scotland - 59.90%
8 I hope the new owners value this distillery. Its location, stillhouse design and – most important – its whisky, bring something special to the far north.

Old Pulteney 21 Years old
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
7 A two times dram. Fruity sweetness followed by a dry spiciness. The two faces meet up on time.

Old Pulteney 30 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 44.00%
7 A very engaging whisky with good integration.

Old Pulteney 40 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 51.30%
8 The sherry dominates on the oaky side. Too much for me but if you like woody corpulent whiskies, this one is for you.

Old Pulteney Good Hope WK209
Single Malt - Scotland - 52.00%
8 An outdoor dram which comes back indoors as it opens. For a winter warmer up.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Old Pulteney Isabella Fortuna WK499
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
8 A charming dram. Rich, elegant, vibrant. A perfect uplifting cordial.

Gordon & MacPhail Old Pulteney 1990
Single Malt - Scotland - 59.40%
7 The hug of sherry is soporific; the saltiness a stinging reviver. A morning run in Wick; a gale in John O'Groats.

Gordon & MacPhail Old Pulteney 1990 Cask Strength
Single Malt - Scotland - 58.80%
7 So sherry… Dark Oloroso wipes out all maltiness. Unbalanced but sherry fanatics will love it.

Gordon & MacPhail Old Pulteney 8 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
7 Tastes like Manzanilla to me. I don't speak for anyone else.
