Old Pulteney Navigator Bottling Note

What's that we spy off the starboard side? It's a new single malt whisky from Old Pulteney! The Navigator is a maritime malt aged in a mix of ex-sherry and bourbon casks in celebration of the distillery's history with the ocean and the old sea dogs that sail it.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Sweet, succulent apple lashings with dollops of chocolate and vanilla.

Palate: Drips of honey and syrup-y orange.

Finish: A salty finish sneaks up from nowhere, very nice.

Overall: Set sail for tasty single malt!

Old Pulteney Navigator Reviews

A disappointing young and raw ageless expression

Very disappointing. I had loved the OP 21, and the 12. The navigator has the OP trademark flavour, this ages expression feels too young and raw, and has no lasting character. Avoid.

Great OP whisky

It has a smooth and wounderful taste about it. I tried it on a Cruise ship in the seas beetween sweden and Finland. Now im a luck owner of this archived product.

No !!!!!

I am absolutely disappointedy. Although I consider OP 12 years old whisky as one of the best, this one is in all aspects (nosing/tasting/finish/price) knocked out in 1st round. I won't be buying any NAS whisky in the future. Just my opinion after two very bad experience.

Excellent malt to introduce newbies to single malt

Excellent malt. Very light and crisp almost delicate. This is the perfect malt to introduce someone to single malt scotch. I'm on my 4th bottle and would highly recommend this whisky.

Heavy slabs of chocolate and sweet-sour green apple on the nose, smooth sweetness on tongue followed by the sweet and salty finish. Nothing more to ask for at this price. Would definitely order one for collection... maybe two... or three :)

Okay, but rather raw compared to the OP 12, which at about the same price is a better buy.

After drinking the OP 12 as my day-to-day whisky for the past year, I tried a bottle of The Navigator when my local merchant ran out of the 12. Although it has the signature OP salt sea-air aroma, it has a good deal of heat going down, which is probably to be expected in a whisky without an age statement. Since the very mellow 12 is about the same price as The Navigator, at least here in the US, I think the former is a better buy for the money.

I love the Old Pultney range of age statement malts. But this has some astringent and raw alcohol resulting from a rushed distilling process or from using very young casks. I wish there was more sherry influence but cannot taste anything but Bourbon. You are better off saving money and buying the excellent OP 12 year old.

Good Value

Purchased for $45 and I am pretty happy with it. Not that smooth but it is a NAS and it's at 46% and its a highland so I'm not sure why you think it would be. It's all about the flavor with this one creamy,fruity,coastal goodness like eating vanilla pudding with some raisins in it by the sea. There is a slight soapiness to it but I think that's because it is young. I like that it is non-chill filtered and natural color though. I'd say this is pretty equivalent to the 12 year with this being stronger but the 12 year a little smoother.Worth a try. Cheers! The Sugarbear

Many other bottles for a similar price that are much more complex.

One of my favourites, great session whisky with a lovely vanilla aftertaste

28th July 2016

A bit harsh

There are much nicer whiskies out there. This ones quite hard to get on with. Quite harsh, tastes young, bit salty and not sweet enough. No idea where the supposed sherry comes from in the description there are none of those notes on the nose or taste. Look at the colour of it; this is not a sherried whisky. Scraped 3 stars.

14th June 2016

Like it!

Very smooth!

12th June 2016

Not as good as it appears!

Old Putney is a very pleasant malt but I don't know where they found this one. I can honestly say the bottle I have is the roughest malt I have ever tasted and not worthy of the name. It's only use will be medicinal from now on. Perhaps I purchased a 'bad' bottle?

This Beer Blog:

The colour is rich and gold like in appearance and when rolled around the glass is quite syrupy.

The nose has aromas of stewed sweet bramley apple with notes of vanilla and dairy milk chocolate. There are hints of lemon, orange and honey in the background.

The flavour has notes of spice with a bitter orange citrusy flavour, liquorice and the trade mark Old Pulteney brine. There are hints of vanilla, and a slight honey sweetness in the background.

The finish is medium long and warming with notes of brine and lemon zest coming back.

This whisky is immensely drinkable and has provided me with a really exciting rival to the most excellent Old Pulteney 12year old!! I wonder however if this would have been even better bottled at a slightly higher ABV ??

8th September 2015

something different. Good thing

Gave this a try and it was different. some citrus and SHerri undertones. Put one ice cube in and watch the Scottish mist then wait 10 minutes and and the fFlavor changedWith 10 undertone. some salt and a nice finish medium finish. definitely recommend

Are you kidding??

I LOVE Old Pulteney Navigator!!! It's difficult for me to get, as I live in a rural area of Illinois, USA. I really like the 12 year old, too.

Very smooth

very nice whisky.
salty , butterscotch and vanilla..
would buy it again

27th October 2014


Personally, I would rank this one higher than the 12y, despite a lack of age statement. I don't know if it's the "hand picked" casks that make the difference here, but this was a surprisingly delicious dram for the price (about $44USD) and I finished the bottle in about 3 days as a result. If you like Old Pulteney 12, definitely give this one a try.

5th February 2014


Just bought it in New York . Another gram of paradise!!! I'm buying again 1000%.
