OLD PULTENEY 2005 Flotilla 46%
Single Malt Whisky, Scotland / Highlands, 70cl, Ref: 19649
Our experts reviews“ Par ses accents marins, iodés et salins, le millésime 2005 de la cuvée Flotilla pourrait indubitablement servir de définition pour décrire le single malt élaboré par la distillerie Old Pulteney. A cela, il faut ajouter un fruité dont l’exotisme (noix de coco, ananas) et la douceur vanillée enrobent les papilles avec une grande délicatesse tout en conservant constamment un brin espièglerie.
The third release in the Flotilla series from the Pulteney Distillery, this 2005 remains faithful to its predecessor in every way, with a maritime, herbaceous, iodine character. It invites us to navigate between notes of exotic fruit, coconut, vanilla, and a generous dose of salinity. The long finish transports us to the open sea off the coast of the northern Highlands.

- The brand
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.
