Old Pulteney 1990 Vintage (ex peaty casks) Review

Old Pulteney Navigator I recently managed to get onto an Old Pulteney Twitter Tasting, but I unfortuanately i managed to miss the tasting due to some family issues, but as some others had not received their drams in time we ended up redoing it, last night, so my first time tasting this dram.

A 1990 vintage dram that has been matured in both ex bourbon and ex sherry casks that previously held a peated Islay whisky, this adds a smoky edge to the dram.

Why not pop over to Master of Malt to get one for yourself.

Tasting Notes & Details

Nose

Theres a gentle waft of smoke, like walking into a room with an open fire and kindling beginning to light, underlying the smoke is a real sweetness that has juicy fruit chewing gum and gentle oak touches

Palate

touches of smoke with hints of something a little spicy that tickles the tongue with lots of juicy fruity honey sweetness

Finish

juicy fruit chewing gum and gentle spice
