Old Pulteney 30 year old (2013 Edition), 40.1%

Price: $384 Issue: Fall 2013 Reviewer: Gavin Smith

Apart from the 40 year old expression launched in 2012, this is the oldest Old Pulteney on the market, and annual batches are

released with slightly varying strengths. Refill bourbon casks have been used in their maturation. Sweet and zesty on the deceptively youthful nose, with banoffee pie, eating apples, and quite sweet oak on the palate. Cereal notes and pleasing oak in the lengthy finish. £250
