Gold For Old Pulteney 25 Year Old At World Whiskies Awards

26th March 2018
Recently released Old Pulteney 25 year old impresses judges at World Whiskies Awards.

Old Pulteney 25 Year OldOld Pulteney 25 Year Old was only introduced by the Northern Highlands Pulteney distillery late last year to replace the Old Pulteney 21 Year Old and it seems it has already impressed the judges at the prestigious World Whiskies Awards 2018 where the Old Pulteney 25 Year Old expression picked up a Gold accolade in the Scotch Highlands ‘21 & Over’ category.

As you can imagine, the 25 year old Single Malt Scotch Whisky, which was released in October 2017, fought off stiff competition from other Scotch Highland whiskies to take the Gold honour at the awards.

The World Whiskies Awards, now in its 11th year, is a global celebration of the very best in all internationally recognised styles, awarding and promoting the world’s best whiskies to consumers and the trade across the globe. This year, the competition received entries from over 20 countries, which were judged by over 50 international judges.

Described by the distillery as: "Glimmering bronze in colour, Old Pulteney 25 Years Old contains mature and fragrant flavour notes. The expression opens with heavy spices and dark chocolate which effortlessly lead to rum-soaked raisins and lime honey, punctuated with clean notes of orange peel and baked apples.

"The flavour is firmly anchored in bitter chocolate and creamy vanilla with hints of toffee sweetness and crisp overtones of fresh lemon and coconut. The finish is long and spicy with a notes of dried fruit cake and exotic wood, each dram reflecting its expert craftsmanship with a rich and satisfying taste."

Matured in ex-bourbon American oak barrels for 22 years before adopting its spicy sweetness, depth and colour from ex-Oloroso Spanish oak butts before reaching its premium age of 25 when it is bottled at 46% ABV.

Malcolm Waring, Distillery Manager for Old Pulteney, commented on the WWA award, saying: "This is a fantastic accolade for Old Pulteney 25 Years Old. We’re thrilled the expression has won a Gold award having only been released late last year. We’ve worked incredibly hard to create another expression in the Old Pulteney core collection that lives up to the expectations of the others and it’s with great pride that we can announce this whisky is another award winner in our growing portfolio."

You will find the award winning Old Pulteney 25 year old available from specialist online whisky retailers such as The Whisky Exchange and Master of Malt
