  • Excerpt: Malt and toffee on the palate, with spicy oak and a hint of brine. The medium-length finish is nutty, with wood spices.

  • Excerpt: As it stands today, it compares just fine, though without any significant distinction, with any number of other unsherried 12 year old single malts (and some blends) on the market — particularly now that the price is creeping up to close to $50.

Raided Score is a conversion from an external site's score, to our in house uniform scoring system. Please see the FAQ for more.

  • Intro:

    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.

  • Nose:

    Honey, bread, bakery sweets. Faint brine, sea breeze, lemon tart and some gentle pepper.

  • Taste:

    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.

  • Finish:

    Medium, no heat. Lemons, apples, pears. Brine, honey and toffee. Its sweet, fruity and salty in an impressively complex blend.

  • Overall:

    I like this. It's a little on the light side, but it's enjoyable and notably very complex.

  • Score:

    6
