The Navigator is an ageless special edition whisky that was was designed to celebrate Old Pulteney’s maritime heritage. The Navigator is made using ex-bourbon and ex-sherry casks which are then selected by the master distiller.
On the nose: It opens up with a fresh aroma of crisp and succulent green apple. This is complemented by notes of vanilla and rich milk chocolate. In the very background there appears to be the faintest trace of citrus
On the palate: it feels fresh and vibrant because of the strong top notes of lemon zest and sugared orange ride. In the background are subtle hints of vanilla and warm honey.
It finishes quickly with a salty sea brine (in a good way) and more zesty citrus notes that helps to dry the mouth out it and keep you from being overwhelmed with the sweetness.
Overall it’s a solid Scotch and one that you should check out.
Retails for around $45 for 750ml
