Old Pulteney Single Malt Scotch Whisky is no stranger to satisfying the taste buds of whisky aficionados. Now many will be pleased to know that its range of whisky from the Caithness coastline of Scotland has been revamped and refreshed.
The new collection was recently featured at a Masterclass held at Asiaeuro Wines & Spirits Sdn Bhd in Kuala Lumpur.
Old Pulteney Single Malt Scotch Whisky New Collection
The Masterclass had distillery Manager Malcolm Waring (who has been helming Pulteney Distillery for the past 12 years) introducing and sharing the new expressions to the Old Pulteney family.
The new collection features the non-aged smoky Huddart, followed by a 15 year old and an 18 year old. The collection is complete with the addition of the classic 12 year old malt.
Distillery Manager Malcolm Waring
Distilled and matured by the sea in the town of Wick on one of Scotland’s most remote and rugged Highland coasts, the new ‘fleet’ of Old Pulteney single malt Scotch whiskies still retain the maritime malt characteristic besides having a new package design.
The Huddart with an ABV (alcohol by volume) of 46% has character and depth. With a warming rich gold color, the mellow and smoky whisky echos mellow wood smoke and burned toffee on the nose. Flavors of freshly-ground spices and soft vanilla balance the central notes of wood smoke and peat fire. With sweetness and salty coastal flavors, it reminiscences of salted caramel.
15 Years Old
The amber-colored 15 Years Old expression (ABV 46%) bursting with aromas of rich dried fruits, sweetness and touch of creaminess stirred much excitement This whisky proves to be Old Pulteney’s most balanced and smoothest single malt whisky. On the finish, one can expect a hint of salty sea air.
18 Years Old
The 18 Years Old (ABV 46%) takes its character and deep amber colour entirely from the American oak casks and Spanish sherry butts in which it was nurtured. This expression gives way to a chocolatey indulgence, layered with vibrant spices and accented with a hint of citrus.
12 Years Old
The golden-coloured 12 Year Old expression (ABV 40-43%) is the perfect place to start your Old Pulteney journey. Matured for 12 years in ex-bourbon casks, it amalgamate the salty flavours of the sea with the influence of American oak. The expression offers fruity flavors and fresh spice across the palate, with a faintly salty long-lasting finish.
Held at the auditorium room of AsiaEuro, the masterclass began with the tasting of the new releases, followed with Malcolm’s sharing of Old Pulteney’s heritage and his working journey in producing the fine malt whisky.
