Inspired by our award winning Old Pulteney 1989, Huddart is matured in American oak ex-bourbon barrels, before being finished in ex-peated malt casks. Bottled at 46% It is not only named after the street where it lies, but also Captain Joseph Huddart who provided maps and charts for the British Fisheries Society who were the builders of Pulteneytown and its harbour. He was also for a period a Director of the British Fisheries Society.
- Appearance : Golden
- Nose : Rich and warming. Brimming with mellow wood smoke, honey and oily leather at first, to later bloom with crisp green apple top notes. Creamy vanilla and a hint of burned toffee in the background.
- Palate : Freshly-ground spices and soft vanilla balance the central notes of wood smoke and peat fire.
- Overall : There are both richly sweet and distinctly coastal chords in the background, together reminiscent of salted caramel.
Founded in 1826, Old Pulteney is among the distilleries that closed their doors for almost 30 years before re-opening in 1959, at the dawn of one of the biggest booms in the history of whisky. The most northern distillery in mainland Scotland, Pulteney enjoys a superb reputation amongst amateurs: its saline character, enhanced by hints of coconut and broom, has won over the palates of the most seasoned connoisseurs. Owned by the Inverhouse group, its bottlings are predominantly matured in bourbon casks. It has in the past, however, repeatedly marked itself out with bottlings aged entirely in sherry casks dating back to the 1960s.
