I first came across this whisky when I visited scotland a few years ago. Unfortunately I did not visit the distillery although we visited Wick. Anyway, I immediatly fell in love with this gem. It's a very reasonable priced whisky (in fact I paid approx 20 pounds), very delicious and while it's a IMHO a perfect dram to serve to a whisky-beginner yet it has enough complexity to please the more advanced whisky-enthusiast too. So if you are looking for a good whisky which doesn't cost too much, Old Pulteney 12 might be what you're looking for.
Nose: it starts with a hint of chocolate, some vanilla and a bit salt. you also notice the wood
Taste: there is some leather, salt again (just slightly) as well as shortbread, cereals and hints of banana (the 17 years old has more banana-like taste). There is also a taste which reminds me of flowers. It has a kinda oily texture.
Finish: nothing spectacular, very short with only some vanilla.
