Old Pulteney unveils three new premium Malt Whiskies in duty-free

Old Pulteney Single Malt Scotch Whisky has released a 2002 Single Cask (number 717) as part of a Swedish travel retail exclusive to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Cinderella Whisky Fair – along with two other vintage expressions.

Old Pulteney Single Malt Scotch Whisky has released a 2002 Single Cask (number 717) is an elegant whisky has matured in an ex-bourbon American oak barrel. Bright gold in colour, Old Pulteney 2002 cask 717 contains sweet toffee and chocolate aromas, followed by light citrus fruits and a slight saltiness – adopted from its maritime heritage.

This whisky exudes creamy chocolate flavours, paired with vanilla and coconut to entice the senses. Soft fruits, hints of spice and saltiness follow, with a warming, sweet finish peppered with a signature Old Pulteney tang.
Old Pulteney Viking Line Single Cask is inspired by Old Pulteney’s coastal home in Wick on the North Sea coast in Scotland, where it is matured in warehouses near Wick Harbour.

With 242 bottles available, this distinguished 57.1% ABV whisky will be available at the whisky fair with a RRP of SEK 1299.

Two other premium expressions including the 2006 and 1990 Vintage casks will also make their international debut at the Viking Line, before expanding wider for international travel retail. The ticket only event is the world’s largest floating whisky fair. Here, Pulteney distillery manager Malcolm Waring will introduce the new expressions in a series of exclusive masterclasses.

Old Pulteney 1990 Vintage Cask
The 1990 Vintage cask tells a tale of craftsmanship and dedication, dating back over a quarter of a century. This full-bodied spirit began its story in American oak ex-bourbon casks, developing its characteristically complex nature, before moving to Spanish oak where it became richer, darker and adopted a sweetness with hints of spice. The unique expression finished with a brief spell in casks which previously held heavily peated whisky – providing a unique smoky final flourish for a powerful Maritime Malt.

Polished copper in colour, 1990 Vintage Cask has an aroma of spice, vanilla, toffee and sweet honey, balanced by a thin veil of warming wood smoke and oak. Bitter orange marmalade and caramel apples soon follow on the nose to create a long-lasting sensory experience for this exquisite dram.

Rich in mouth feel and intense in flavour, the palate opens up with strong praline and sultana sweetness on a thick bed of warm, savoury smoke. Citrus strikes the top note with hints of vanilla lingering in the background, giving a finish which is long and smoky.

Old Pulteney 1990 is neither chill-filtered nor coloured and is bottled at its natural cask strength of 46% ABV. It has a RRP of £288 per bottle.

Old Pulteney 2006 Vintage Cask
The 2006 Vintage cask is matured in ex Bourbon American Oak casks for 11 years. Polished copper in colour, the scent is spicy and sweet with notes of vanilla and toffee, balanced by a thin veil of wood smoke and embers. Bitter marmalade and hints of caramel apples soon follow.
Rich in texture and with intense flavours, this expression entices the palate with strong chords of pralines and sultanas on a bed of deliciously warm, savoury smoke. Citrus and vanilla notes linger for a long, smoky finish.
Recommended retail price is £55.00 per bottle, The Old Pulteney 2006 Vintage is neither chill-filtered nor coloured and is bottled at a cask strength of 46% ABV
