Description

Old Pulteney 15 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky showcases the magic of maturation by the sea. Aged for 15 years in a combination of ex-bourbon and Spanish oak casks, this whisky offers a complex and rewarding flavor profile.

Aroma

The initial impression offers a rich and inviting bouquet. Bursting with aromas of dried fruits like raisins and figs, it hints at the sherry cask influence. Honey sweetness and a touch of creamy vanilla emerge, adding a touch of elegance. Subtle floral notes might also be present, hinting at the complexity of the whisky. As you delve deeper, a whisper of sea air and salt emerges, a signature characteristic of Old Pulteney’s coastal maturation.

Palate

The medium-bodied character offers a satisfying weight on the tongue. The initial taste is a delightful explosion of sweetness and spice. Dried fruits like fig and raisin translate beautifully from the aroma, offering a rich foundation. Honey and vanilla sweetness dance on the palate, adding a layer of complexity.  Fragrant spices like cinnamon and Christmas cake emerge, hinting at the influence of the sherry casks. A subtle hint of chocolate or toffee sweetness might also be present. The coastal influence becomes more apparent here, with a touch of salty minerality that lingers on the finish.

Finish

The sweetness fades gradually, leaving a long and smooth finish. The maritime influence lingers with a touch of salt and brine. Hints of spice and dried fruit offer a final whisper of complexity.  The 46% ABV provides a gentle warmth that complements the flavors.
