This 21 Year Old Old Pulteney Single Malt Scotch is a marriage of whiskies matured in ex-bourbon casks with spirit from ex-Oloroso sherry casks. Mostly second fill American oak, plus some Spanish oak first fill. However when compared with the 17 year old, there is a higher proportion of ex-Oloroso sherry cask used for this. Old Pulteney 21 Year Old was voted '2012 World Whisky of the Year' by 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 Old Pulteney was just the second Scottish distillery to do so. Golden amber with straw highlights, it is full-bodied with traces of fruits (apples and pears), slightly fragrant with spicy overtones. The palate is creamy, toffee, vanilla, baked red apple with a hint of smokiness and a dry finish.
