Old Pulteney 17 year old, 46%

Price: $80 Issue: Spring 2007 Reviewer: John Hansell

Pleasingly sweet and fruity, with notes of caramel apples, berries in honey, vanilla, and ripe pear. Fresh brine and subtle mint emerge occasionally and linger on the finish. Nicely balanced, more complex with a wider range of flavors than the Old Pulteney 21 year old.
