An Old Pulteney single malt from 2006, which was left to age in first fill American oak bourbon barrels selected by Malcolm Waring, distillery manager. The no age statement whisky was bottled in 2017 at 46% ABV, presented in the recognisable Old Pulteney bottle.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose Sharp green apple skin, with lemon drizzle cake, desiccated coconut, salted caramel and buttery croissant.

Palate Somewhat oily, with a vibrant burst of citrus, with tangy grapefruit and lemon, leading into honeyed malt cereal, brioche and coconut cream balanced by maritime salinity, with a sea breeze running throughout.

Finish Vanilla, oak spice, sweet malt and oak char.

Reviews for Old Pulteney 2006 Vintage (1L)
A very decent Old Pulteney
I think Old Pulteney is best matured in bourbon barrels and this dram is from all first fill so I was expecting a lot of vanilla sweetness to offset the usual saltiness - and that's just what I got. I didn't get much spice on the finish but I got a whisky that perilously easy to enjoy, with or without a drop of water. It's a 2006 vintage but try as I might I could find no reference on the bottle or box to the 2017 bottling date mentioned above so it must be classed as a NAS whisky. It reminds me of Old Pulteney of yesteryear before the current 12yo supermarket-available came to prominence, which I find a bit thin and lacking in punch. This version is certainly not that so for those hankering for a more robust OP, this is one for you.
