Old Pulteney Highland Single malt Scotch Whisky

17 year old 40% Distillery Bottling.

Highland Region Northern District.

Established in the town of Wick, Pulteney Distilled is the most northerly distillery on mainland and at that time was only accessible by sea. The barley was brought in by sea, the Whisky shipped out by boat and many of the distillers were also employed as fishermen. Sadly the fishing industry continues to operate using the same traditional distilling methods first introduced in the 1800’s to create one of the finest Highland Malts available.

Whisky Tasting note

Appearance: Red amber with a rich autumnal hue.

Nose: Sweet with traces of apples and pears; slightly woody with a hint of butter-scotch.

Tasting notes: Full bodied, with hints of vanilla and floral notes in the background; a long-lasting memorable finish.
