The 15 Year Old Maritime Single Malt
A 15 year old expression from the whisky wizards of Wick. Matured in ex-bourbon casks, then finished in Spanish sherry casks, this is an exceptional offering form Old Pulteney. The distillery has won an impressive range of awards for their whiskies, and won hearts of whisky enthusiasts the world over.
Matured for 15 years, this is a balanced and smooth single malt. Balancing two different sides of the flavour spectrum, this single malt marries these perfectly, whilst also reflecting its coastal home and its unwavering influence. On one hand, this is an intense single malt, yet at the same time, it is truly balanced. Spice and sweetness unite in this naturally rich amber whisky to celebrate rich flavours, yet lighter, more refreshing coastal notes show another side of this single malt.
