Red amber with a rich autumnal hue.
Sweet with traces of apples and pears: slightly woody with a hint of butterscotch.
Full bodied, with hints of vanilla and floral notes in the background; a long-lasting memorable finish.
Our 17-year-old predominantly features ex-bourbon maturation, with the addition of spirit that has been wholly matured in Spanish wood ex-sherry casks, predominantly Pedro Ximenez and Oloroso. This adds a subtle depth and complexity to the whisky, making for an outstanding after-dinner drink.

The extreme location and unique stills have resulted in a distinctive flavour, bursting with the power and subtlety of the sea. Old Pulteney is the embodiment of history, people and place:
It is the Genuine Maritime Malt.
