The Old Pulteney distillery in Wick is the most northerly distillery on the Scottish mainland. It is a windswept location, where the uncompromising landscape of the Highlands meets the North Sea, and the waves crash against the granite walls of the harbour. The extreme location and unique stills have resulted in a distinctive flavour, bursting with the power and subtlety of the sea. Old Pulteney is the embodiment of history, people and place: It is the Genuine Maritime Malt.
Matured for 18 years, Old Pulteney 18 Year Single Malt Scotch Whisky is indulgent and spicy thanks to the casks selected for maturation. Taking its character and color entirely from the casks within which it has been nurtured, this is a deeply warming whisky. The indulgence extends through this single malt with chocolate and spice defining the character but allowing for the influence of more vibrant zesty flavors.
NOSE: Chocolate and creamy vanilla, with rich honey sweetness tempered by vibrant spices.
PALATE: A whisper of flowery fruitiness yields to crisp bursts of citrus, apple and Christmas cake.
FINISH: Long, zesty hints of citrus and green apple.
