Old Pulteney Clipper is a special commemorative limited edition … once it is gone it is SOOOOO gone!

If you look at a map of Scotland, there is a little point at the top … that’s where the little towns of Wick and Pulteneytown are located, and that is where Old Pulteney Distillery calls home. Back when they built the it in 1826, the only way in or out was by boat, and that was just fine because it kept the constables away. This is a Highland Whisky, which makes since because if they were any higher in latitude, Santa Claus would be living next door. 
But these northern gentlemen keep themselves pretty busy. At last count they produced 24 different bottlings and specialty offerings—all from their classic single-malt line. Tons of awards … yadda yadda yadda … great tradition of craftsmanship … yadda yadda yadda …. All you really need to know is that this is all great, single-malt whisky. Every drop that comes off their stills is worth the price of admission.
You may not know that Old Pulteney Clipper was a special commemorative limited edition to honor the Clipper Around the World Yacht Race. Only 2700 cases of the stuff were made and they are not making any more. How cool is that? Uncle Flaviar got his hands on some of the last few remaining cases and smuggled them into the warehouse before anyone found out. 
This far northern dram is a classic highlander through and through. She is aged in ex-Bourbon casks and finished in Sherry butts. So … if you are a true Whisky aficionado you already know what you’re gong to get. A lighter, fruit-forward single-malt with a crisp bite.
