Tasting Notes
Robert KarlssonPristine. Fresh clean citrusy fruits. Rather laid-back. Tastewise a little on the simple side with a slightly orangey malty sweetness. Not bad at all however...
Keith WoodGlass: Glencairn - Colour: 21 carat gleaming gold - Nose: Initially a musty nuttiness followed quickly by the inclusion of freshly polished wood, but lightly so, not heavy and waxy. Finally, a slight spiciness appears with a tingle in the nostrils. - Palate: Although Fino Sherry casks only make up a third of this bottling, they really are predominant on the palate as they partner a very pleasant cocktail of fruit and spices. - With 3 drops of water: This Pulteney grows immensely on both nose and palate and also gains a smooth creaminess which makes for a delightful experience. - Finish: Long as it grows and lingers with a slight dryness. - Overall Impression: A real surprise with that Fino influence but it's good, very good!
