Old Pulteney 40 Bottling Note

This is the oldest ever official release of whisky from the Old Pulteney distillery in Wick, aged for a full 40 years in three sherry casks and a single bourbon barrel (all of which were filled in 1968). It was bottled at natural cask strength and the result is glorious.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Complex notes of fruit and hay. A touch of calf leather, vanilla, apple peels, musty mahogany and spice.

Palate: It’s astonishing how youthful this seems. Certainly it has the complexity. It gives away hints of old, rich oak that come with age, but it’s also gloriously light in body, offering a lovely amount of sweetness. Vanilla notes, nutmeg, cinnamon and pastries develop.

Finish: Good length and very spicy. Christmas Cake, honey, cedarwood and chocolate oranges. Cut grass and dark fruits, potpourri and cocoa.

Overall: Just brilliant! So much going on and incredibly youthful in terms of sweetness and pep. We loved it!
