Ultimate Beverage Challenge 92 points - Bright golden/straw yellow appearance. Complex, deeply grainy and cereal-like, almost like Graham cracker, in toast, slightly honeyed bouquet. Taste profile features sweet, ripe pear-like flavors that never lessen in intensity or piquancy. Lovely distilling. (Apr 2016)

The Old Pulteney distillery in Wick is the most northerly distillery on the Scottish mainland. It is a windswept location, where the uncompromising landscape of the Highlands meets the North Sea, and the waves crash against the granite walls of the harbour.
The extreme location and unique stills have resulted in a distinctive flavour, bursting with the power and subtlety of the sea. Old Pulteney is the embodiment of history, people and place:
It is the Genuine Maritime Malt.
