Old Pulteney 12

Old Pulteney 12

It smells and tastes like the ocean!  Sherry sweetness on the nose.  Interesting salty/briny taste with some sherry sweetness on the palate, not the honey-type sweetness that you’d get from a decent Speyside malt.  The mouthfeel is a bit thin on this one, but it’s pretty balanced.  The salt lingers through the short and drying finish.  I would recommend this whisky for a beginner.  I bought this for about $27.  Great value at that price point, I’ll give it a solid “B.”  43% abv.
