So much whisky, so little time | Singapore | Tasting Notes

Old Pulteney 17yo

One of the most strangely shaped bottles around, said to resemble the shape of the stills:

Old Pult 17

Nose  Nose: Orange peel and beeswax. Wood polish. Mentholated, then sea water and fruit gummies. Rather thin and shy overall.

Taste  Palette: Sweet malt. Potpourri and pepper, quite hot! Then dried herbs and salt tussle, with dried herbs winning.

Finish  Finish: Medium, malty and salty.

Score30

Bear in mind that Old Pulteney is one of very few distilleries left whose modern style sits longingly close to the past, something we should all be grateful for.

Overall fairly enjoyable, challenging enough to hold your attention for a bit, or else sit back and relax when in the mood for ‘something else’.
