The Old Pulteney 1989 Vintage is an excellent whisky which has won numerous awards including the World's Best Single Malt 2016, Best Highland Single Malt 2016 and the Gold single Highland Malt over 21 Year Old Award 2016. Bottled in 2015, which makes it a 26 Year Old, it has been matured in second-fill ex-Bourbon barrels, which had previously held heavily peated malt whisky.A pretty good allrounder as far as we are concerned!
Nose: Toasted brioche and salted butter at first. Slowly develops notes of fresh doughnuts, sea shells and a drop of candle wax.
Palate: Pink peppercorns, oat cakes, yellow plum, honey and leather. Very lightly grassy, and with a subtle touch of black liquorice.
Finish: Waxy orange and lime peels, followed by a whisper peat.
