Old Pulteney 18 Year Single Malt Scotch
Released as part of a fleet of new expressions by Old Pulteney in mid 2018, this 18 year old single malt is drawn from a combination of bourbon and Spanish oak casks. Excellent stuff as ever from this Highland distillery.
Nose: Cinnamon-spiced cookie dough, mature oak, a very light touch of charcoal.
Palate: Dark chocolate and green apple make for a great juxtaposition of bitterness and sweetness, while waves of vanilla and rye bread sit in the background.
Finish: Citrus, sea salt and wet grass.
SeaTrees is a not-for-profit ocean initiative run by LA-based Sustainable Surf. Working with scientists and communities around the world, it supports the protection, restoration and regeneration of blue carbon ecosystems which include mangrove trees, kelp forests, coral reefs and seagrass meadows.
Here at Old Pulteney, based in the coastal town of Wick, the past, present and the taste of the whisky itself, is influenced by our intrinsic connection to the sea, which we are dedicated to protecting, and so have partnered with SeaTrees to help regenerate the health of the ocean and protect coastal ecosystems.
We believe that it is our collective responsibility to look after our natural environment, increase biodiversity, promote plant productivity and protect sea life.
