Whisky Unplugged Tasting Notes:

The first thing to report here is that, despite the new packaging, the recipe remains the same! Now, we might have been caught up in the moment, but during the tasting session, we noted that the classic 12 year old OP is matured solely in bourbon barrels. Is that right? The colour to it has such a reddish tint that we would swear there is some sherry influence here. A quick Google search proves we should trust our notes more! The 12yo is most certainly only matured in air-dried, ex-bourbon casks. Even without the sherry influence though there are so many fruits going on here! Sultanas and pear drops. Butterscotch sweetness and toffee flavours too. There?s a vanilla fudge softness and texture to it as well. The malt really comes through nicely. The signature Old Pulteney briny taste is present at the end too. Just a little bit mind you, not too overpowering. Classic. A staple in the WU cabinet.
