Seasonal Malt

Now for all Sinclairs, it has to be Wick's own "Old Pulteney". As Donald
reminded us the Manager is Fred Sinclair.

"Pulteney is the most northerly distillery on the Scottish mainland. It
stands in the suburbs of Wick, about eighteen miles from John O'Groats, in a
rugged, windswept, sea-pounded area. An unlikely setting for a distillery,
except for its close proximity to the sea, which at one time was the only
means of transporting the whisky to the south. The name Wick is of
Scandinavian origin and signifies an opening or bay, which is quite
descriptive of the town"

Tasting Notes
Nose:Medium to high intensity, dry with a hint of sea air.
Colour: Deep amber with a slight pink hue.
Dry, medium bodied and smooth with a clean finish: faintly salty with a
slight sherry note.
