Review of the
Old Pulteney 2006 Vintage travel retail
Old Pulteney 2006 Vintage is the only expression to survive from Old
Pulteney’s previous travel retail
collection. It has been repackaged
inline with the other two new
expressions in their travel line-up.
This small-batch whisky has
been fully matured in hand-selected first fill
American ex-bourbon oak casks which is
sure to add its flavour
intensity and sweetness.
The Old Pulteney 2006 Vintage is bottled at 46%
ABV, non-chill filtered with naturally
coloured, it is presented in 1 litre bottle
and has a RRP of £50.
Morrison's Tasting Notes:
Some sweet coconut amongst the vanilla
toffee and honey, a little apple & pear
and a vibrant lemon citrus.
A honey and vanilla sweetness laced with
candied pears and delicious zesty orange
and lemon, some icing sugared coconut
joins the charge. A little late salted
caramel and some lovely vibrant mouth
coating oak spice.
Vanilla and barley sugared mildly drying
oak lingers for an age before bowing
This is a whisky which has been retained
in the travel retail range from the
previous travel retail range and with
good reason, it is a very enjoyable
whisky and isn't that the point?
I have seen this whisky slated by a
couple of "malt-review 'ers'" on the internet and I have to say that
I totally disagree with their opinion of
it and I have to question whether they
should be influencing any whisky drinkers purchases.
This is an outstanding example of a
whisky of this age and the cask type used in its
at £50 for a 1 litre bottle this is a
fantastic buy when passing through the
airport. Another one to watch for on
If you have no travel plans in the
near future you can still find the
Old Pulteney domestic
core range of whiskies
which was updated last year and some now
discontinued Old Pulteney favourites
such as the 17 year old available from specialist online whisky
retailers such as
