The smart Whisky lover will find his way to Old Pulteney Navigator.

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 Pulteney town are located, and that is where Old Pulteney Distillery calls home. Back when they built it in 1826, the only way in or out was by boat, and that was just fine because it kept the constables and tax collectors away. This is a Highland Whisky, which makes sense because if they were any higher in latitude, Santa Claus would be living next door. At last count they produced 24 different bottlings and specialty offerings — all from their classic single-malt line — and have won tons of awards.

Located on the farthest northern reaches of Scotland, Old Pulteney is greatly influenced by seafaring and the rugged men who worked the sea. So they have a tradition of naming Whiskies after nautical themes. Each year they sponsor a “Round the World” yacht race, and on their clipper-ship entry in the 2013-14 race they sent the first case of their new Whisky — Old Pulteney Navigator — on board for a trip around the world. It’s a classic Highland-style dram drawn from a combination of ex-Sherry and ex-Bourbon oak casks and bottled at a perfect 46% ABV with no chill filtration or artificial colors.

First-class Whiskies are taxed not only by the state but also by the angels. This refers to the 4% of Whisky that evaporates from the barrels every year, a phenomenon known as the angel’s share.
90% of all Scotch Whiskies sold are Blends.
Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
In its early years, many of the men working Old Pulteney's stills were also fishermen.
Scotland is home to more than 20 million casks of maturing Whisky. That’s four for every person living there. Nuts!
Scotch Whisky is seldom aged in new barrels. Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey casks are usually used for maturation. In addition to that, Whisky is often matured or finished in various wine casks such as Sherry or Port.
