The Limited Edition 1990 Vintage is the latest addition to the portfolio of Old Pulteney Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky.
Only 900 cases of this exceptional single malt will be rolled out across the globe. Priced at £120, and matured in American ex-bourbon and Spanish ex-sherry casks which previously held heavily peated whisky, every 700ml bottle is non-chill filtered at 46% ABV. Amber in colour, on the palate this full bodied expression is sweet to start with a touch of spice and a long and intense smoky finish.
In keeping with the brand’s rich maritime heritage, the 1990’s striking packaging features a ship decking effect on the outer tube, a porthole stamp and Old Pulteney’s classic herring drifter, which has become a symbol of the distillery.
Founded in 1826 at the height of Wick’s herring boom, Pulteney Distillery is one of the most northerly manufacturers of its kind on the Scottish mainland. It is this unique maritime heritage that gives the whisky its identity as the ‘Maritime Malt’. A long-held favourite tipple for whisky enthusiasts, many say they can taste a faint hint of the sea in Old Pulteney malts thanks to the Distillery’s windswept location and close proximity to the North Sea.
