PULTENEY 12 YO 2008 COLLECTIVE 4.0

$150.00

Highland Single Malt, 43%, 70cl — Small Batch of 2 casks, Sherry Butt Recask
Limited edition of 1860 bottles — LMDW Exclusive

Founded in 1826, the Old Pulteney distillery was completely rebuilt in 1958. One year later, its malting floors were closed. Alternating between short (50 hours) and long (110 hours) fermentations, it produces a rich and complex single malt. Constantly returning to its work for both flavours and aromas, this version overflows with all the ingredients that built the renown of this gem from the north of Scotland. Which is to say, salinity at every moment, an oily and unctuous texture bordering on richness, a subtle combination of fruity and herbaceous sequences, and of course an innate reflex to constantly return the focus to malted barley.

COLOUR
Burnished gold

NOSE
Rich, concentrated. The eminently salty first nose wonderfully expresses Pulteney’s “coastal” character. Allowed to breathe, candied fruits (apple, pear) and citrus fruits (lemon, orange) gradually return to the surface of the aromatic palette. Then, walnut, almond, curry and salted butter caramel highlight the wonderful influence of the sherry, notably evoking the softness and oily character of a manzanilla. Also worth noting is the presence of superb herbaceous and malted notes (moss, tobacco).

PALATE
Mineral, full of energy. Carrying on perfectly from the nose, the attack focuses on aromatic plants (sage, verbena), as barley grains literally spread across the palate. The extremely harmonious mid-palate is divinely salty. Lingering, dried apple and candied pear bring lots of smoothness to a palette of flavours that becomes increasingly tangy (lemon zest, grapefruit).

FINISH
Long, invigorating. The resolutely marine finish also bursts with spices (star anise, pepper, ginger, nutmeg). Gradually, subtle milky (coconut) and vanilla notes gently develop the very end of the palate towards a more malty and at the same time deliciously woody (reed, rush) register. On the retro-nasal olfaction, a gentle marine breeze takes us to the seaside. The empty glass emphasizes spices (cinnamon, saffron).

Description

ARTIST COLLECTIVE
Like the artist collectives that create a hive of exchange, inspiration and design, our Artist Collective range is dedicated to creativity and diversity.

It features all regions and all styles of Scottish single malt, as well as all types of maturation and bottling strengths.

To illustrate the labels of this fourth Artist Collective collection, a design competition on the theme of trompe l’oeil was launched amongst students of French design schools.

The six selected artworks echo the richness of the single malts of the range and the universe to which they are linked.
