Old Pulteney Pentland Skerries new travel retail exclusive.

Pentland Skerries is the third of three new bottlings from Old Pulteney in their new Lighthouse Series which is exclusive to travel retail.

Old Pulteney Pentland Skerries is encased in striking purple packaging, this design features images of two lighthouses of the same name. Developed with input from renowned Scottish engineer Robert Stevenson, the Pentland Skerries lighthouses were built in 1794 on the uninhabited Pentland Skerries islands off the far north eastern coast, en route to Orkney.

The whisky is matured in Spanish ex sherry casks and has a sweet, full-bodied taste with hints of raisins, spices and chocolate. Bottled at 46% ABV, with a RRP of 54.99

William Morrison's Tasting Notes:

Nose: Creamy toffee, raisins, sultanas, vanilla, almonds.

Taste: Sweet juicy barley sugar, dark treacle toffee, burnt raisins, orange, dark chocolate, Demerara sugar sweetness, touch of spice in the background.

Finish: A deliciously lingering toffee'd, dry sherried fruity finish with a bit of slowly fading cherry, raisins and oak spice.

Comment: Its deep amber colour tells you what to expect, a lovely full bodied well balanced lively sherried dram for the sherry oak lovers. Full of flavour and a lovely lingering finish.

SMW Score 91/100
