The Old Pulteney 18 Year Old was launched in 2018 to replace the much loved 17 year old expression. Matured in a combination of ex-Bourbon and Olorosso Sherry casks, this is a lovely expression from the Wick distillery. Amber in colour with a milk chocolate, orange and sandalwood nose. The palate is full and smooth with more of that sweetness evident. More red fruit is noticeable, raisin, damson and some sweet cinnamon. Honeyed, spicy and citrusy on the finish which is long and pleasant.
Official Tasting Notes
Colour - Deep Amber
Nose - Intense and Warming. Indulgent chocolate and creamy vanilla, with rich honeyed sweetness tempered by vibrant spices. Awhisper of flowery fruitiness yields to crisp bursts of citrus and apple.
Palate - Chocolaty indulgence layered with honeyed spices and Christmas cake. Floral notes lend a flash of finesse, while zesty hints of citrus and green apple enliven a lovely long finish.
