Old Pulteney 12 Years Old 70cl 40°

Distillery : Old Pulteney / Country : Scotland / Reference: : 20374

Marked by salty, smooth and iodine accents of rare strength, Old Pulteney 12 Years Old matured in American oak Bourbon barrels, that account for its delicate, sophisticated and bewitching character. Notes of spiced vanilla and green apple also rise from the glass.

Crafted with unhurried, forlorn traditional techniques abandoned by other distillers, this Single Malt is a high-quality whisky.

This spirit is sometimes called the "Northern manzanilla", a nickname regularly confirmed by whisky experts and lovers throughout time.

Not only is Old Pulteney the most northern distillery of Scotland (Orkneys excepted), but the distillery has many other reasons to capture the mind of the malt aficionados…

Property of Allied Domecq, Old Pulteney was purchased at the end of the last century by Inver House, who wishes to focus on the twelve-year old version, even if the malt is also greatly appreciated by blenders.

This change of ownership was followed by refurbishments and renovations works, but this never changed the true style of the distillery. The wide, bellying and imposing stills are developing into an intricate pipe system, distributing the precious distillate through copper spirals and curves.

Is this why Old Pulteney is so fascinating and so richly aromatic? The peat is there, a hint or a scoop of it depending on the bottling, together with cereals, sherry sometimes, for some blends. But let’s not forget the sea, everywhere from the nose to the glass, through its salty and iodized accent of rare strength.

Colour: amber with a pale pink glow.

Nose: powerful and generous nose, oily with notes of cocoa and exotic fruits.

Palate: a thick and full body, with great liveliness and perfect finish. Biscuity aromas, very gently peated with undertones of herbaceous heather honey, and a finely salted and iodized flavours joined by slight notes of spicy vanilla.

Finish: a lively, fresh and plentiful overall, for a genuine character.
