Old Pulteney, 15 yr old, Single Malt Scotch Whisky

700 ml, 46.0% abv, Scotland (Highland)

Matured for 15 years, they state that this is Old Pulteney’s most balanced and smooth single malt.  Balancing two different sides of the flavour spectrum, this single malt marries these perfectly, whilst also reflecting their coastal home and its unwavering influence. On one hand, this is an intense single malt, yet at the same time, it is truly balanced. Launched in 2018 as part of their new range and matured in 1st fill ex-bourbon casks, and then finished in 1st fill Oloroso casks.

“Spice and sweetness unite in this naturally rich amber whisky to celebrate rich flavours, yet lighter, more refreshing coastal notes show another side of this single malt”

Description

AROMA : Intense yet balanced. Bursting with rich dried fruit, ripe apples and citrus, with honey sweetness and a generous chord of creamy vanilla. Slightly chocolaty and floral in the background.

TASTE : Fragrant spices and Christmas cake, with layers of chocolate and a distinct dark toffee sweetness. There is a hint of salty sea air on the finish, a clear connection to the influence of the sea on this single malt.
