Mackays’ Malts: August Edition

Posted: August 14th, 2018 | Posted in: General News, Mackays' Malts

True to our word, here is your monthly update one of our dearest malt collections – the Old Pulteney 12 year!

Originating in Wick, this malt is popular world round, holding numerous gold medals from the most prestigious of international competitions.

The secret you may ask?

Well, Old Pulteney prides themselves on using traditionally crafted techniques that have long since been abandoned by other distilleries.

This mixture of both history and skill ensure that the malt, which is matured for twelve years in ex-bourbon casks,  remains ‘unashamedly excellent’ – embodying the standard expected of the long favoured Old Pulteney.

The dram provides a big sherry presence alongside sweet citrus notes, offering deep palates of oak and spices. Overall this medium spiced malt will leave you with dry and smooth tones, the perfect accompaniment after a dinner in our No.1 Bistro.

If you fancy a wee dabble of this month’s favourite, stop by the Mackays’ bar where we will gladly serve your whisky needs!
