OLD PULTENEY 12 YEAR OLD HIGHLAND SINGLE MALT SCOTCH WHISKY
The 12 year old expression from Old Pulteney released in mid-2018 was entirely aged in bourbon casks, resulting in a heavy influence of bourbon sweetness - which helps to balance the characteristic coastal salinity of the whisky. An excellent introduction to Old Pulteney (though well worth a look even if you've already been introduced).
Nose: Honeycomb, vanilla tablet, soft sawdust oakiness and oatcakes.
Palate: Chocolate peanuts, mint, citrus peels, maritime elements and white pepper.
Finish: Toffee, brine and lemon.
