We drank some of this at Christmas this year. Not bad overall but its not a whisky for the big occasion.

I really like Old Pulteney. It's a real sailor's whisky - dry, with a salty tang.

I understand this review was made 3 years ago - however a score of 40 out of 100?

IMHO - a "not bad" score should be somewhere in the mid to upper 70's...A score of 40 is one step above sewer water.

Old Pulteney 12 yr is one of my favorites, and a damn fine value.

@FMichael we all score differently.. some, like this reviewer, may actually be using ALL of the 100 point scale as opposed to the 65 to 100 that most of us use - in which case, according to their taste, they rate this a little below par (for whatever reason) - however they use the term "not bad" in the review which to me, should suggest at least an average mark of 50/100 on that scale so that's probably the only criticism I'd have about this rating.

Something should really be done with 'reviews' like this one. You see the average score of an excellent whisky get killed by @#$% like this.
