Michael Jackson

Nose
Hint of peat. Nutty. Earthy.
Palate
Oily. Distinctly nutty. Toasted nuts. Peanut brittle.
Finish
Now salted nuts. Intense salt on the tip of the tongue. That distinctly maritime Manzanilla character.
Comment
I hope the new owners value this distillery. Its location, stillhouse design and – most important – its whisky, bring something special to the far north.

Dave Broom

Nose
Rich with honey/wax, dried fruit and a savoury/sulphury note. There's damp chamois leather and oilskins. Some oak as well.
Palate
Big, (make that BIG) thick and oily. Coats the mouth with robust savoury/sweet flavours, chestnut honey, wax and layered fruit/fruitcake.
Finish
Tingling, long with treacle toffee and oak.
Comment
Like all Pulteneys this is all about texture and weight. A lovely big hairy bear of a dram.
