wanted to post something for PI day, and figured my 314th whisky review on Reddit is close enough.
I was at the in laws, reviewed Jack Daniels and then wanted to do something else, but had nothing but Drambuie… Then my dad in law said I could have some OP12 from a mini I grabbed him in Scotland and I hadn’t had it before. Let’s see.
Old Pulteney 12 – 43% ABV
- Appearance: light gold. Looks uncoloured.
- Nose: Salty sea air, honey, Briney, malt, floral, more honey, some oak, citrus, apple, pear.
- Palate: malty, Briney sea water, spicy, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves. Less fruity and floral than the nose, but there’s a bit.
- Finish: moderate and salty.
- Score: 82
Quite nice. I love salty island drams and this reminds me of one. might have to buy a bottle.
