Just because I am getting sick of reproducing a multitude of near identical tasting notes in many different places let me just say this Malt tastes like a well fashioned blend. By that I mean it is acheived as a single malt the profile a lot of blenders look for when creating a well fashioned whisky. Touch of grass, some vanillia, a mix of light refreshing fruits, and sweet honeyed cereal grains. Those are the themes running throughout the entire enjoyment of this Single Malt.

Tomato, kiwi, green grapes, and a lot of pineapple juice. It also has a nice underlying note of salted caramels. When on the palate the sea salted caramels dominate, but the fruits emerge in full force on the finish. The finish is actually reminiscent of a mix of salt and the whole tropical pack of starbursts.
Alright this Glen Scotia is an incredible summer dram. It is a fruit bomb, the most notable of which is Peaches. The taste honestly felt like eating and drinking the syrup of a little pre packed peaches cup. A very light and refreshing dram, incredibly complex! Finish while incredibly long is the only part of this whisky that feels lack luster.
When is Old Pulteney not a summer dram? This one takes the term salted mangos to a whole new level. The mango is similar intensity, but wow heavy dose of salt in this one! Touch of vanilla to round and smooth things out. Similar but strikingly different to the OBs. This one sets itself apart due to extra salty character, and also the fact that it comes across as far sharper than the well rounded OBs
Nose: Salt, pears, vanilla, straw, and a plethora of malted barley.
Taste: This is where the summer aspect comes in, sweet, and full of fruits, red apples and pear dominate.
Finish: The wood and vanilla notes transfter into honeyed cereal in a rather long finish.
Thick and oily on the nose lots of malted grains. That profile stays through the taste, though getting far lighter with wildflower honey, and green apples, with vanilla. It also has the slightest touch of pineapple to round things out.
For its high proof it is certainly an enjoyable summer dram, though on the heavy side.

I would like to say "better late then never", but that would require him to actually be late. Right now it is starting to look like never.
