Old Pulteney 12 Year Old Bottling Note

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).

Old Pulteney 12 Year Old Reviews

Your average 12 year old

This is just good whisky. There are lot of better 12 years old but this is not bad. As a seasoned whisky drinker it left me wanting more depth and flavor. But still a decent dram

Well worth drinking if you like a bit of the coastal brine and I do

Personal taste really is just that, for anyone to say one whisky is good or bad is purely their opinion, some are worth listening too others are best ignored. Is this the best whisky.........nope. Is it the worst whisky..................not at all. My personal opinion for what it's worth is it's a fine malt, around 80 out of a 100 score, have I ever scored one at a 100............nope.

Save for a special but reasonable occasion. Dont expect any left in the morning.

As a clean speyside whisky lover, I was a Glenmorangie lover. For the smoothness fruitiness and citrus aromatics. I now have a new go to 12 year old Malt. Different but better...New go to for the after dinner chill 👍😎

As good as you’ll get for the price.

Maybe it’s because I’ve eaten a hot curry and it’s cleared my sinuses, but the nose and palate of this wonderful malt sing! I’ll say one thing. Clarnico chocolate limes. If you’re over sixty you’ll know what I mean. This is going to be a fixture of my cabinet from now on.

Its not too bad . It’s not too great either…

It’s pleasant enough but it’s not great but not poor either .but somewhere in between. I suspect it’s great for beginners, whilst I am not a seasoned professional I know what I like . Just wondering what if this wasn’t dumbed down to the minimum 40% like many others, more alcohol more taste is my mantra, sadly OP12 doesn’t each those heights. . I bought this as my go to Bourbons weren’t available . I wouldn’t say to anyone not to purchase this whisky, it’s each to their own.

Don't listen to the single malt snobs

A brilliant 12 year. I love the maritime essence. It's a good solid single malt.

For the money, totally worth buying

Exceedingly smooth on the palate, currants and sultanas dissolving into a citrus squash, a spicy after taste comes through with a hint of beetroot.

A middling 12YO

Smooth, creamy, with an almost brandy finish. Easy to drink and moreish.

Not great, few 12yo are great, but certainly OK for the price.

What have you done to my boy?

I remember liking OP12 but it's not the same anymore. Here we go:
Nose: A bit of moonshine, and that's it.
Palate: No, not really.
Finish: Actually has hints of whisky.
So in conclusion we have a cheap 12yo that's still not worth the money and despite it's weak 40% only smells of alcohol. Wow

The Meursault of whisky?

This reminds me of a fine Meursault. This is pure, firm and lush at the same time, nicely aromatic, lighter to medium bodied, has a slightly stiff veneer on top and marvelous oily ripe banana, oatmeal and slight oak/vanilla note in the palate and retour. Talk about moreish. If this has a maritime/salty component it is well mixed into the bouquet and palate and supports/counterpoints everything marvelously.
