Old Pulteney 18yr Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Matured for 18 years, this is indulgent and spicy thanks to the casks selected for maturation. Taking its character and colour entirely from the casks within which it has been nurtured, this is a deeply warming whisky. The indulgence extends through this single malt with chocolate and spice defining the character but allowing for the influence of more vibrant zesty flavors.
Chocolaty indulgence layered with honeyed spices and Christmas cake. Floral notes lend a dash of finesse, while zesty hints of citrus and green apple enliven a lovely long finish.
Dark dried fruits, notably fig and raisin, and light vanilla entice the nose. Vanilla is more pronounced on palate, accompanied by mouth- watering salinity and an echo of Sherry-dipped fruit. Adding water releases a billow of peat smoke and black pepper heat on the bracing exit. Finished in oloroso Sherry casks.
