This is great……and here’s why!

700ml

88/100 - Distiller

Enjoyably coastal single malt from the Old Pulteney range, launched in 2018 alongside three other excellent expressions. Excellent stuff from this much-celebrated distillery in the Highlands.

Nose - Toffee, coffee and sultanas. Balanced sweetness of toffee and sea spray salinity.

Palate - Salted caramel cookies, green apple sharpness, sea salt and straw.

Finish - Chocolate with red chilli. A hint of spiced rum warmth.

Though Pulteney is no longer mainland Scotland’s most northerly distillery its stills remain the country’s oddest. It is possible that they retain a similar design to that installed by James Henderson which were described as being similar to those as used by smugglers, though these are considerably larger.
