New from Old Pulteney Distillery is this rather interesting, 1989 vintage release, that's been matured in hand selected American oak, ex-bourbon barrels. These casks previously held a heavily peated malt which has given the whisky a slight smokey character.... New for 2015, bottled at 46% vol.

Old Pulteney 1989 Vintage Official Tasting Notes

Appearance: Polished amber.

Aroma: Spices of the Orient and tangy green apples are wrapped in a veil of warm wood smoke. Honey and vanilla cut through the middle with a lemony top note and a faint floral accent.

Taste: It starts dark and peaty, with a heavy, spicy underpinning. But the sweeter and lighter notes soon follow, bringing to mind vanilla custard laced with runny toffee, a touch of coconut, worn leather and a generous helping of bitter orange marmalade. 

Finish: The peat smoke flickers and changes, revealing a very mature, spicy and tannic side of this superb vintage. Long lasting and satisfying.
