Old Pulteney has announced a second release of its limited edition 35 Year Old expression, following the success of its first release in 2014 which sold out globally.

There will only be 1,254 bottles, each with a recommended retail price of £515,  of this rare whisky available through specialist outlets around the world.

The second release is matured in ex-American bourbon and ex-Spanish oak casks which have been hand selected by Distillery Manager, Malcolm Waring.

Each bottle is encased in a beautifully engraved wooden box featuring Old Pulteney’s distinctive herring drifter symbol, and is naturally coloured and non-chill filtered at 42.5 per cent ABV.

The distillery describes the new expression as “full bodied” and “initially sweet and spicy on the palate, before quickly developing a range of flavours from honey, rum soaked raisins and oranges to the heavier notes of seasoned leather, pralines and a touch of the salty North Sea air before finishing with waves of dried fruit”.

Old Pulteney Senior Brand Manager, Margaret Mary Clarke commented: ‘We are delighted to launch the second release of Old Pulteney 35 Year Old Single Malt, building on the success of our first release which was in high demand amongst whisky lovers around the globe. It is an exceptional expression, fantastically balanced and a true representation of the skill and

“It is an exceptional expression, fantastically balanced and a true representation of the skill and quality of the Old Pulteney distillery team.”
