World Whisky of the Year 2012

Since 1826, the Pulteney Distillery has crafted a Single Malt Scotch Whisky that is the very essence of it’s remarkable location, and in the Jim Murray Whisky Bible 2012 Awards, their Old Pulteney 21 Year Old, has beaten 1,200 others to win the top spot.

In the very far north of Scotland, by Wick’s historic harbour, the quietly maturing spirit lies in hand-selected oak casks, slowly capturing the unique character of this stunning landscape with it’s long seafaring history.

Old Pulteney 21 year old Single Malt Scotch Whisky


“Old Pulteney 21 Year Old” has been voted 2012 World Whisky of the Year by the prestigious “Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible”, after testing 1,200 whiskies from around the world.

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 this is just the second Scottish distillery to do so.

I had to check on my Fathers favourite, “Glenfiddich” and found that in the 2011 awards the Glenfiddich 50 Years Old received 95 points.
