Old Pulteney Single Malt Scotch Whisky 21 year oldWorld Whisky of the Year 2012 "The 21-year old Old Pulteney absolutely exploded from the glass with vitality, charisma and class." Jim Murray, Whisky Bible 2012 Old Pulteney 21 Year Old has been voted 2012 World Whisky of the Year by the prestigious "Jim Murray's 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 we are just the second Scottish distillery to do so. Tasting notes: As with the 17 Years Old, with this expression we marry together Old Pulteney matured in ex-bourbon casks with spirit from ex-Oloroso sherry casks. We mostly use second fill American oak, plus some Spanish oak first fill. However, there is a higher proportion of ex-Oloroso sherry cask compared to the 17 Years Old. Alc/Vol: 46%
