The extreme location and unique stills have resulted in a distinctive flavour, bursting with the power and subtlety of the sea. Old Pulteney is the embodiment of history, people and place: It is the Genuine Maritime Malt. Color: Deep amber with a slight pink hue. Nose: Medium to high intensity, dry with a hint of sea air. Palate: Dry, medium bodied and smooth with a clean finish: faintly salty with a slight sherry note.
