Back to tasting at full speed… today it is turn for an Old Pulteney. I really never enjoyed much their whiskies and when Jim Murray named Old Pulteney 21 years old the best whisky in the world I was slightly disappointed when I tasted it.
“Not my kind of whisky... but it has a taste that remind me of a smoky & salty Balvenie 12 years old. Interesting”
This dram has a fino-like color.
Nose (86): more than average. honey, citrus, wood, spices, cinnamon, salt, smoke.
Palate (88): powerful, oily. honey, wood, vanilla, spices, toffee, cinnamon, smoke, salt.
Finish (88): longer than average. honey, wood, spices.So based on other whiskies I have already tasted I rate this Old Pulteney Navigator Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky with 87 points over 100.

So with this Navigator I have the same feeling. It is a good whisky but it doesn’t hit the key with me… I am not particularly fond of peated sherried whiskies, except if it is a Laphroaig…
