Old Pulteney 17 year old

Aged: 17 years, bourbon/sherry marriage

Colour: tropical sunset

Strength: 46%

Best for: middle of the road moments

Nose: very vanilla, citrus, lemons and oranges, apple, more subtle than the 12

Taste: salty tang around the edges still there, honeydew melon and stewed apples with a hint of vanilla. Slightly harsh next to 12 and 21 though

Verdict: not bad, but not great. 12 or 21 much better bets
