Old Pulteney 12 year old, 43%

Price: $45 Issue: Winter 2018 Reviewer: Gavin Smith

The only survivor from Old Pulteney's core range shake-up of 2018, this has been matured in first and second-fill bourbon casks. The nose is delicate, with almonds, honey, and floral notes. Malt and toffee on the palate, with spicy oak and a hint of brine. The medium-length finish is nutty, with wood spices.
