Old Pulteney 15 Year Old Bottling Note

Enjoyably coastal single malt from the Old Pulteney range, launched in 2018 alongside three other excellent expressions (Huddart, 12 Year Old and 18 Year Old). Excellent stuff from this much-celebrated distillery in the Highlands.

Old Pulteney 15 Year Old Reviews

Great salted caramel touch

I loved the 12yo and tried the 15yo recently. I get this salted caramel tast and maritim notes, very enjoyable.
Then the chocolate and chilli takes over. Not what I like the most, but hey, nothing is perfect right ? Still a very good whisky, but in this price range you can find better for sure.
Like others it also reminds me the Springbank 15yo... Which is more complex and balanced, for what I know.

Malty & Salty

Beautifully balanced, biscuity and maritime flavours, finding it hard to reach past at the moment.

Salty sea air in a bottle

Imagine yourself on a rocking boat in the middle of the ocean. Now take a sip of the Old Pulteney 15. Taste the saltiness, taste the mist of the seawater that's been whipped up by the wind. Welcome to the seaside town of Old Pulteney

Very Good

Since remaining bottles of the 17 are harder to come by at a reasonable prices, the 15 is a good option available in the core range at widely varying prices. But here in the US, if you shop around, you can find it in the upper $80 range and it's worth it. I actually enjoy it more than the 18 which I feel is overpriced. The 18 is NOT up to the 17 and the 15 is a whisky unto itself but completely OP. It's good.

very disappointing

I have always enjoyed Old Pulteney 12yo in the past, so when I saw the 15yo in the Black Friday sale I thought I'd give it a go. Surely at 15yo and 46%, it would be even better than the 12. Sadly, no. It's a fair dram without water - but only just - very vanilla sweet with a hint of spice on the finish. However, with a drop of water, it disintegrates into a watery alcoholic honey. Absolutely horrible, tasting nothing like whisky. I suppose I was expecting something like a Springbank or a Glen Scotia given that OP is proclaiming it's the maritime malt but it's a pale imitation and given its near £60 price tag, I think I'll stick to the much more reasonable Glen Scotia 15yo (£48) in future.

excellent, despite the price hike

As someone who very much appreciates most OPs from the 12 through to the 17, in a vertical tasting, actually the OP15 really does hold its own to some of its bigger brothers. Very fruity (apples, citrus) balancing the salty seaside, good amount of background spice and sharpness kick. Less rich than OP16 and 17 (a wee bit more sherry taste to the latter two). But in the end it is the aroma complexity and taste balance that matter most to me. And at this the OP15 delivers. The 15 has more intense palette delivery whereas the OP17 a longer finish. I would rate it as a high as I do rate the old 17.

Golly Gosh, this is good!

Honestly was surprised by this one. I found the new 12 year old expression fierce and bland, but this is amazing. A real sweet nose, fruity delivery and something sublime to finish.

Salty finish

Great nose, fruity fudge and sweet malt. At first it is fruity on the palate, I get the green apple. Then comes the peppery chili-heat and salt, and the salt lingers in the finish.

My new go to Whisky.

I loved everything about this whisky. the nose, the delivery and the finish. Superb. If you enjoy sipping complex whisky, this is a great place to start. Enjoy! Oh, pretty good value as well I believe.
