17YO - Best Single Malt Aged 16-21 Years (Multiple Casks) - Jim Murray's Whisky Bible 2013

"Tight, but does all that is possible to reveal its salty, fruity complexity with pears and lemons to the fore; one of the softest, most beautifully crafted deliveries in the whisky world. Absolutely faultless as it picks the most fabulous course among the honeyed vanilla and barley which is so delicate, words cannot do it justice; near perfect balance between the vanillas and delicate honeys the nose confirms that some of the casks at work here are not A1. Even so, the whisky performs to the kind of levels some distilleries could only dream of."

"The 21-year old Old Pulteney absolutely exploded from the glass with vitality, charisma and class."
97.5 Points - Jim Murray Whisky Bible 2012

“I was on the home straight after four months of continuous tasting. By that time I was pretty sure I knew what the winner was going to be. With what I still had to taste it needed something exceptional to knock the leader off its perch. But that’s exactly what happened. To be honest, I was amazed. I knew the Old Pulteney 17-year-old was likely to be exceptional, and it was. However, I had never come across a Pulteney 21-year-old like it. Talk about coming out of left field… I first went to Pulteney nearly 25 years ago and I have never known them to produce anything other than top rate malt. Owned by a relatively small company, without the financial muscle of the major whisky barons to market their malts on the global stage, I hope that this award helps Pulteney to become better known around the world; that is the whole point of my Whisky Bible, after all.”

Distillery Info

The distillery was founded in 1826 by James Henderson and was named after the newly developed Pulteneytown area of Wick. At the time it was one (and still is) of the most northerly on the Scottish mainland, and due to a lack of conventional roads, was only accessible by sea. The raw barley was brought in by boat and the whisky was then shipped out by distillery workers who were also herring fishermen.

Sourced from Loch Hempriggs, the water Old Pulteney use is particularly pure and soft – perfect as an aid to the mashing and fermentation process. It is carried via a lade, which was designed and constructed by Scottish engineer Thomas Telford in 1807. The distillery came a little later in 1826, but they still use that same lade to flow the water right into Pulteney Distillery.
