What's in a name? Old Pulteney 17 Year Old whisky is called whisky because it's produced in Scotland. Were it from America it would be spelled Old Pulteney 17 Year Old whiskey, rather than whisky.

The nose is clean and fresh with great balance. There is a profusion of fruit, from fruit salad with honeydew melon and pear to dried fruits, sultanas in a hot cross bun, fresh from the oven, a lightly salted butter melts over it with notes of fudge and a hint of something vaguely green. There is a lovely creaminess to the nose with notes of soft whirling smoke and crème fraîche. The palate is quite full and very sweet with sugared citrus peels and toffee. There are some notes of beeswax and honeycomb and fudge rises with malted barley and cereal sweetness. The finish is long with a herbal edge and a chewy oak.
This is aboslutely one of the finest whiskies I ever have had the privilage to drink. It's simply superb.
The finish is sublime.

I forgot the rating on the above review. Old Pulteney 17 does have some side effects...

A Lovely Little Gem
It has an amazing scent of candied pears and lavender.
The taste is even better. Imagine a jar of capers. Remove the capers and half of the liquid. Put some sugarbaked pears and a bit of seawater in the jar, along with some star anise. It doesn't sound that great, but goddamn, it makes a great dram. And no color or chill-filtration, makes this a gorgeous drink.
I got two bottles stowed away, and I still wish I had more. Very highly recommended. This could be priced at £100, and I would still gladly purchase it.

What a great scotch! I thought I've already had the best, HP18, ARDBEG UIGEADAIL, but nope, not really. This one here offers me something special! It is delicate, sweet, salty, with a long finish. Exceptional. One of my favorites if not my favorite! I'm getting another bottle! Great whisky!
