This is the youngest expression in Old Pulteney's core line of age stated products. I have reviewed the 30yr before, and found it to be delicious.
Honey, bread, bakery sweets. Faint brine, sea breeze, lemon tart and some gentle pepper.
Sweet butter cream. Medium mouthfeel. Faint brine and the sea, honey and pears. This is a delicious, gentle blending of sweets, faint fruitiness and a nice touch of brine.
Medium, no heat. Lemons, apples, pears. Brine, honey and toffee. Its sweet, fruity and salty in an impressively complex blend.
I like this. It's a little on the light side, but it's enjoyable and notably very complex.
