Old Pulteney Flotilla 2000

It has a nice and fresh nose, but on the palate it feels still somewhat immature. The rather sharp spiciness is not balanced by the other flavours. – Rating: 79/100

The spices are quite dominant here, especially with a bit of water. The fruit flavours barely manage to keep up. – Rating: 83/100

This duty free only bottling is not nearly as maritime as the standard Pulteney expressions. It’s not overly complex but very enjoyable anyway. – Rating: 82/100

A very nice expression centered around dried fruits and mild spices but it’s not not the maritime style you might expect from this distillery. No need to add water. – Rating: 84/100

Very complex and very well balanced. This is a highly enjoyable malt that can be sipped drop by drop. There is a minimal bitterness but it’s not disturbing in any way. – Rating: 87/100

A very nice costal malt that reminds me a little of some Sprinbanks. It is quite mild but pretty complex and a delight to enjoy – Rating: 86/100

A very pleasant nose, but the whisky is a but watery on the palate. Please upgrade this nice dram to at least 43%! – Score: 80/100
