It’s only fair to say that Old Pulteney just keep producing some of the best single malt in the world and it’s rewarded every now and again. However when one of your single malt whiskies is pronounced World’s Best Single Malt Whisky of 2016 at the World Whisky Awards in London you should get the feeling you’re doing something extra special.
This single malt whisky spends time maturing in casks previously filled with peaty, smokey whisky from Islay. This gives the whisky a slight peatiness, meatiness, oakiness like no other expression on the market. An incredible marriage of flavours and aromas producing something extra special.
Official Tasting Notes
Nose: Spices of the Orient and tangy green apples are wrapped in a veil of warm wood smoke. Honey and vanilla cut through the middle with a lemony top note and a faint floral accent.
Taste: It starts dark and peaty with a heavy, spicy underpinning. The sweeter and lighter notes soon follow, bringing to mind vanilla custard laced with runny toffee, a touch of coconut, worn leather and a generous helping of bitter orange marmalade. The peat smoke flickers and changes, revealing a very mature, spicy and tannic side of this suberb Vintage. Long lasting and satisfying.
