Malt from the most northerly mainland distillery in Scotland. This 21 Year Old is an exceptionally well-matured version well worth a try. This was just rated the best whisky in the in Jim Murray’s 2012 Whisky Bible.Scoring a record-equalling 97.5 points out of 100, it is only the third time that a single malt has ever won the prestigious award, and Pulteney are just the second Scottish distillery to do so.

Old Pulteney 21 Year Old is incredible! The aromas and tasting notes are perfect in this whisky; it’s not too spicy, not too sweet, it has a perfect balance of texture and flavor. It’s a work of art!

I had cleansed my pallette with a piece of dry parmesian cheese and the taste came on gradually and smoothly. A nice tang with complicated notes of sweet molasses and honey with a lingering creamy grassy finish that lasted and lasted. No burn, just creamy, peaty goodness! Give this a try! I’ll go out on a limb here and say that may be one the best I have ever tasted.
