Proof66 Notes

Old Pulteney 17yr expression is the second youngest available and is aged not only in American bourbon casks but also Spanish Ximenez and Oloroso sherry casks providing "a subtle depth and complexity to the whisky."

Old Pulteney scotch is made in the charming, rustic, anti-technology distillery in the far north of the mainland. This is the scotch for traditionalists and Luddites alike "using techniques that other distillers have long abandoned." Founded in 1826 (with several ownership changes and some years of silence), it is named for "Pulteneytown," itself a fishing village named for Sir William Pulteney.

Very nice whisky. Very balanced. Caramel sweetness and notes of the sea in the nose, nice arrival and mouthfeel, more flavors pick up, maybe a hint of tobacco, a fine cigar shop, sea mist, finishes well, highly recommended, runs about ninety bucks in Chicago, if you can find it.
