Old Pulteney 12 year old was quite mediocre but still an okay whisky. Didn't offer much complexity or character for it's price range you won't go wrong either.
Old Pulteney 12 yrs was kinda funny mix of two themes not so close to each other. It was a mix of salty sea air kind of minerals and floral/forest berries.
So even though the taste and scents didn't explode mind blowingly, Old Pulteney 12 offered a nice ride into 'whisky seasides and forests'.
I felt like a hobbit marching through the Shire (homeland of the Hobbits) or swimming in the northwestern Eriador shoresides.
Nose: Quite bitter and oaky with berries and some floral feel. Like sniffing junipers and lingonberries.
Taste: The feel of oak and salty minerals are strong. Hints of toffee and spices.
Finish: Spicy and oaky dry, medium long.
Balance: Very steady whisky. Everything seems to be working coherently, yet without any big character. Okay dram.
