Tasting Notes
Keith WoodGlass: Classic Malt - Colour: 9ct Gold - Nose: Initially slightly sweet with vanilla, melon and heather blossom. AFter some minutes an aroma of fine soft Italian leather develops. - Palate: Begins with vanilla then tingles with slightly peppery green apple and a hint of leather. - With 4 drops of water: Nose is more intense with lots more flora. The palate tingles with light wood. - With 4 more drops of water: Some maritime elements of sea air, salt and jetty appear on the nose, whereas the palate is now softer and more gentle with more fruit. - With 4 more drops of water: Much more maritime nose whilst the palate is filled with heather and light wood. - Finish: Long, even longer with water. - Overall Impression: An excellent Old Pulteney with a great character, perhaps even Caithness personnified.
