Old Pulteney 17 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

SKU #1043872 Whisky Advocate

 In one word: exotic. In some respects, it is reminiscent of a very old column-distilled Jamaican rum, and a lot of the wood spices really express themselves. Like the Compass Box whisky above, this whisky again proves that grain whiskies should not be ignored. They taste completely different than other whiskies-particularly the older ones-and they can be a lot of fun to drink. The two reviewed in this buyer’s guide are very fine examples of the style.

K&L Notes

While the Old Pulteney 21 recently won the title of "Best Whisky in the World," we here at K&L couldn't help but be reminded of that old John Lennon quip about Ringo ("Best drummer in the world? He's not even the best drummer in the Beatles!"). The 17-year-old is far better in our opinion, offering more nuance than its older brother. If you're a true Scotch fan, then you'll appreciate the brilliance of the Old Pulteney 17 Year because it's a dying breed these days. A creamy mouthfeel with flavors of vanilla, dried apricots and sweet cereal grains is what enticed to me go back for a second sip. This is vintage Highland whisky and I love everything about it. The stonefruit still lingers on the tongue more than five minutes after tasting it and the caramel becomes more stated. I can't believe I'm writing this, but in this case it's appropriate: they don't make 'em like Pulteney anymore. I wish they did. (David Driscoll, K&L Spirits Buyer)

This is a delicious single malt from a great distillery. It is very complex, offering interesting aromas of brine that lead to nice malty yet dry flavors. A single malt to enjoy and contemplate.
