Old Pulteney Single Malt Scotch Whisky unveiled Old Pulteney 40 Year Old, the oldest official bottling in its line of single malts. A limited number of bottles will be available for purchase in the United States. Adding to its rarity, each bottle of the 40 Year Old is hand-blown, making it one-of-a-kind, with a silver “wave” effect created by melting solid silver and blowing inside the glass.
The malt’s app earance is rich amber with a red hue and the taste is fruity and floral with hints of orange, green apples and butterscotch. It is sweet and spicy with traces of toffee and pears, full with sherry notes and has a long-lasting finish.
“The Old Pulteney 40 Year Old is among the most exclusive of our single malts ever to be released and is a very special addition to our Old Pulteney line,” said Patrick Graney. “Following the enthusiastic response to the 21 Year Old after it was crowned the 2012 World Whisky of the Year in Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible, I am confident whisky enthusiasts will enjoy the exquisite taste and presentation of the 40 Year Old.”
Old Pulteney Distillery Manager, Malcolm Waring and Distillery Visitor Center Manager, Tanya Fraser hand-filled each bottle. The package is a one-of-a-kind, glass lacquered wooden gift box with an engraved silver herring drifter brand logo. The box also contains a hand-signed book written by whisky expert, Charlie MacLean. The Old Pulteney 40 Year Old has an extremely limited availability at a retail price of $2,400. Visit Old Pulteney on Facebook or at http://www.oldpulteney.com
