Old Pulteney 17 Year Old Scotch Whisky


Founded in 1826, Pulteney Distillery was hosted on the Scottish mainland. Malcolm Waring is the distillery manager and has established and used classic methods within this set-up. This includes things such as worm tubs, no technology/automation, and the unusual wash still. There are two expressions that have been added to what was already there in the form of a 21 and 17 year old option. This was done in 2007 to further emphasize the importance of this Scotch brand. This is different because of that unique combination of aging with taste.

Review of the Old Pulteney 17 Year Old Scotch Whisky

It has a unique, thick color to it that ensures its richness remains. There is an oak and smoky fruit type fragrance to it that is enchanting. With a palate that features complex flavors such as vanilla, caramel and velvety oak, it is quite the surprise. The finish is pleasant with its sweetness and memorable oak flavor.

This is a wonderful scotch and is certainly one of the best most people will ever have. It is quite far ahead of anything else that is out there at the moment. Mix this in with other things and watch the creation of some of the best whisky cocktails. Make sure only the best mixers are being used to ensure nothing is overpowering the actual whisky. There is no need to go further than the Rob Roy or Rusty Nail, the rest should be used with the younger expression.
