Old Pulteney Duncansby Head, 46 %

Review #156
One of the Old Pulteney whiskies made exclusive to travel retail. It is matured in 80 % bourbon casks and 20 % sherry casks. The smell is young and malty. If you have been at a distillery and smelled a washback that is finish (or close to finish), you know what I am talking about.

A bit more going on in the taste. Some vanilla and oak mixed with hints of fruity notes. Some burned oak appears in the finish with some honey. Unfortunately, the finish loses its power fast even though it is 46 %.

A whisky that is bottled to young in my opinion. The smell suffers tremendous due to this. The taste helps a bit on the total impression though. I will give this 79/100 (19/21/20/19).
