Old Pulteney Huddart Single Malt Scotch Whisky (700ml)
Volume: 700ml ABV: 46% Age: No Age Statement Country: Scotland
Founded in 1826 by James Henderson at the height of Wick’s celebrated herring boom, the Pulteney Distillery is one of the most northerly on the British mainland. At a time when road links to the town were yet to be established, the distillery was dependent on the sea for its supply of barley and for the shipping out of its malt whisky. Wick became known for the barrels of silver (herring) and gold (whisky) which left the port in vast numbers.
The distillery itself has an absorbing history, with its unique stills defying convention to this day. The wash still, in particular, is a source of fascination to visitors due to the absence of a ‘swan neck’. Legend has it that when the still was delivered it was too tall for the still house and the manager simply decided to cut the top off! The Old Pulteney bottle now incorporates a bulbous neck to reflect the shape of the stills.
With its 21 years old single malt was given a magical gift being named by Jim Murray as the ‘Whisky of the Century’ this is a range of whisky you must discover and try to prise yourself away from.
You can expect absolute brilliance, but that’s only my opinion. Salty, fruity and smooth. Vanilla notes and did I say fruity?
The Huddart from the Old Pulteney distillery is one of four expressions released in mid 2018. Huddart is the street on which the distillery sits. The spirit is given a maturation in ex-Bourbon casks and then this whisky is given a finish in ex-peated casks. This allows the whisky connoisseur to experience a peated Old Pultney full of smoke, burnt toffee, crisp green apples and vanilla.
