The Old Pulteney 2010 Cask Strength, created exclusively for The Whisky Club, offers an unprecedented chance to taste ‘The Maritime Malt’ at cask strength, 59 per cent ABV.
It’s the first ever vintage Old Pulteney made exclusively for Australians, and it follows the recent appearance by the distillery’s global brand ambassador Lukasz Dynowiak on the Drinks Adventures podcast.
Old Pulteney 2010 Cask Strength was aged in American oak ex-bourbon casks for ten years. Priced at $140, it is available exclusively for members of The Whisky Club who have signed up before March 7, 2022.
Old Pulteney distillery manager Malcolm Waring says the 2010 Cask Strength displays characters including green apple, spice, vanilla, coconut and butterscotch.
“It’s such a very well-balanced whisky. The mouthfeel on it is absolutely tremendous, with a very long warm finish as well,” he says.
“You’ve got that salted caramel finish on it, it’s absolutely bang on… Complex, soft, deep, spicy, you’ve got everything going on in that whisky, and to be honest, it’s unique in its way of everything that’s in there.”
