Old Pulteney 1989 Vintage - Lightly Peated
American Oak Ex-Bourbon Barrels
Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Old Pulteney 1989 Vintage Official Tasting Notes
Appearance: Polished amber.
Aroma: Spices of the Orient and tangy green apples are wrapped in a veil of warm wood smoke. Honey and vanilla cut through the middle with a lemony top note and a faint floral accent.
Taste: It starts dark and peaty, with a heavy, spicy underpinning. But the sweeter and lighter notes soon follow, bringing to mind vanilla custard laced with runny toffee, a touch of coconut, worn leather and a generous helping of bitter orange marmalade.
Finish: The peat smoke flickers and changes, revealing a very mature, spicy and tannic side of this superb vintage. Long lasting and satisfying.
