Yeah, I know, the box is nice means nothing. But that's first look. A sometimes first look mean it all. So to the box designers: Great Job! The bottle itself has 2 more stage, making a nice bubbling sound while serving. Cider! that's the nose...

Tell me, tell me, tell me why you a re the 2012 winner...

taste: Wawww, ok I got an idea.

It taste holidays with friends. After the meal, everything is finished. The house is clean, and you enjoy a rest while watching the external element with a smile of satisfaction.

It's not that complex but it has an awesome balance.

The only issue is the finish... not hard enough to make me stop after the first glass... I will fill another one.

I'm glad I bough this one.

Actually, I think that "The box is nice" is a GREAT tease. It makes the reader wonder whether there will be intense bashing to follow, though mentally registering the "92" score immediately thereafter should obviously dispel that notion.

It has been way too long, almost a year, since I had my only sip of Old Pulteney 21. I loved it then, and I am due for more.

I bought a bottle of this as Christmas and took two months to drink it to give it time to settle. I thought it was a bit too thick and sweet and reminded me of fruit salad. Technically a great product from the distillers pov but I felt like I was drinking tourists Whisky. Far better offerings out there for the money.
