Disappointed
Great review as always, though I'm sad to say I disagree with Mr. Luening on this one. I personally prefer the Old Pulteney 12 year, which I just finished prior to buying this one after seeing the positive review. While well-executed, the Navigator tastes too youthful to me, and I feel like the salty maritime note actually is a bit too pronounced. I tasted very little sherry cask influence and suspect American oak sherry casks (or re-re-reused European oak casks) were used. Regardless, the Navigator is more expensive than the 12 year and in my humble opinion, not worth the extra premium. I'd say go for the 12 year. It's widely available (at least in my neck of the woods).
