Proof66 Notes

Old Pulteney 21yr expression is one of the premium aged expressions offered by Pulteney. It combines maturation in both American bourbon and Spanish sherry casks--in this case, the sherry finish is made in American oak casks for fino (dry) sherries adding "another layer of complexity, depth and character" to the whisky.

Round, rich and full, but not overpowering. Vanilla and chocolate. Well balanced.

Malty, silky, and rich. Cereal grains, apples and pears, vanilla, and oak on the nose. On the palate I get a rich malty sweetness, hints of vanilla and honey, and cinnamon. The oaky spice and malty aroma linger on the finish. The amount of flavor in this malt is a lot thicker than the proof level (it's 92 proof, not 96) would suggest. It wasn't a cheap purchase, but I'm glad I got it; it's worth it to have around for special occasions and guests. I guess Jim Murray knew what he was doing when he named this malt World Whisky of the Year in 2012!

I can only compare it to a very beautiful and sensuous woman. One does not have to be a Whisky conoisseur to understand that this is a unique dram.There is nothing difficult or challenging about savoring this delightful drink. Just sip it, close your eyes, and enjoy intertwining with the most beautiful women of all time.
