2012 WORLD WHISKY OF THE YEAR, by The Whisky Bible. Aroma of apples, pears with spicy overtones. Sweet to start with a light fruitiness; hints of honey and vanilla followed by a dry finish.
Rich flavors of peat and heather are balanced with smooth oak in the mouth. The finish is rich and smokey.
Double gold winner at the 2006 San Francisco World Spirits Competition, matured in Spanish Oloroso and Pedro Ximenez casks. Offers notes of beeswax and honeycomb and fudge rises with malted barley and cereal sweetness. The finish is long with a herbal edge and a chewy oak.
Finished in ex-sherry casks, Old Pulteney 17yr has subtle depth and complexity. The taste is full-bodied, with hints of vanilla and floral notes and a long, memorable finish. 92 prf non-chill filtered
