Old Pulteney 17

Country: Scotland

Region: Highlands

Type: Single Malt

Bottler: Distiller

ABV: 46%

Score: 91 Points

The nose has notes of smoke, oak, sawdust, graham crackers, and peanut butter fudge, along with a hint of salt. The taste is spicy with a touch of smoke and bacon cooking, coconut, cilantro, and hazelnut, along with a hint of lemon-lime tartness that lasts through the finish. Very complex.
