Old Pulteney has announced the latest addition to their portfolio, the limited edition 1990 Vintage. Only 900 cases of this exceptional 23-year-old single malt will be rolled out globally from November 2013 with a retail price of $190 per bottle.
Matured in American ex-bourbon and Spanish ex-sherry casks which previously held heavily peated whisky, each 750ml bottle is non-chill filtered at 46% ABV. Amber in colour, on the palate this full bodied expression is sweet to start with a touch of spice and a long and intense smoky finish.
To reflect the Old Pulteney’s rich maritime heritage, the 1990’s striking packaging features a ship decking effect on the outer tube, a porthole stamp and Old Pulteney’s classic herring drifter, which has become a symbol of the brand.
Old Pulteney Senior Brand Manager, Margaret Mary Clarke commented: “After a very exciting year for the brand, which included a global partnership with Clipper Round the World Race, it’s great to finish off 2013 by adding a very special expression to our award-winning portfolio. With its eye catching maritime design and rich intense taste, we are confident that the 1990 vintage will be a hit with global whisky connoisseurs.”
