Tsk, tsk. I'll take a bottle of that any day.
Me too. What didn't you like about it whiskytime?
It had a bees waxy, honey, too sweet taste & bitter/harsh ending - it reminded me of a cheap blend - like Cutty Sark (I'd rather have the Cutty Sark!). I do not like sweet whiskey & the bitter edge was really unpleasant. Mixing it w/really tart lemon juice helped cut the wax & disguised the sweetness. It was just very strange & left me scratching my head about the fuss over Old Pultney. I kept going back to it & thinking it would get better - it didn't. It was my first & probably last bottle of OP.
To each his/her own I guess - more of it for all you who like it.
I don't really care for sherry monsters - a little sherry goes a long way w/my palette. I do like peat but I like many whiskies w/no peat too. The friends I shared w/ are similar (not sherry heads) but probably like peat less than me.
Don't become a fanboy.....always question, stay skeptical & follow the money.
