Member Ratings and Notes
Caramel very noticeable in the nose, with hay, oats, and some marshmallow.  The palate is light and smooth, and medium-sweet with hazelnut notes.  This continues into the mild but long finish, where the flavor builds and then spice kicks in, with nutty notes.  This is a great "background" whisky, meaning the kind that I'd like to drink when I'm not really focused on the whisky.  I'd enjoy killing a bottle of this with friends at a boisterous party. 
N: Desert syrup, marmalade, custard, caramel.
P: Dry, zingy, spicy, big mid-palate comes on with some heat.  Very drinkable.   You could drink a lot of this.
F: Fades quickly. 
What a boring waste of time and liver.  Toffee with faint pepper and nuts.  Very faint.  Completely uninspiring.  Old Pulteney should draft a will and die. 
Caramel and malty, nice oak and vanilla. Chewy with golden raisin. Sea salt caramels with a hint of seabrine in finish.  Pretty standard but done well. Easy to dink.
