Old Pulteney 17 Year Old

Old Pulteney 17 Year Old I can't believe I've not reviewed this before, it's a dram I've tried at many an event but I've still not managed to review it on the blog as yet.

This was tasted as part of the #IHDmasterclass which unfortunately I missed due to having to chauffeur my wife after her train was cancelled due to an accident on the line.

This was the only one of the drams in the masterclass that I've not previously reviewed on the site previously which were anCnoc 18, anCnoc 22, Balblair 83, Balblair 90 and Old Pulteney 21

This is lovely, the mouthfeel is fabulously waxy and luxurious, the salty almost coastal starchy rich chips flavours works well with rich dark fruits, it almost goes rubbery on the nose but not enough to cause me any concern. I need to add a bottle of this to my drinking shelf.

Thanks to Inverhouse Distillers for including me on this tasting


Sweet sugar coated dark fruits, almost plum, prunes and sherry soaked raisins, hints of pencil eraser and mr sheen furniture polish and a touch of salty chip shop chips.

Sweet plums and raisins, spicy and almost peppery, that furniture polish is now more waxy, almost beeswax and honey or syrup, cinnamon dusting and again salty starchy chips.

Nutty and spicy, long tasting with a touch of salty chips
