'World Whisky Of the Year 2012' Old Pulteney 21 Year Old has been declared 2012 World Whisky of the Year by the prestigious "Jim Murray's Whisky Bible." Scoring a record-equalling 97.5 points out of 100, it is only the third time that a single malt has ever won the prestigious award, and Pulteney are just the second Scottish distillery to do so.     DISTILLERY NOTES: As with the 17-year-old, with this expression we marry together Old Pulteney matured in ex-bourbon wood with spirit from ex-sherry wood casks. The crucial difference, however, is that the ex-sherry wood in this case is made from American Oak (mostly Fino sherries). This adds yet another layer of complexity, depth and character to this truly superb malt whisky.   COLOUR: Golden amber with straw highlights. NOSE: Full bodied with traces of fruits (apples and pears); slightly fragrant with spicy overtones. PALATE: Sweet to start with a light fruitiness; hints of honey and vanilla followed by a dry finish.
