Old Pulteney “Row to the Pole”

Country: Scotland

Region: Highlands

Type: Single Malt

Bottler: Distiller

ABV: 40%

Score: 87 Points

This bottling commemorates the 2011 expedition that successfully reached the North Pole in a rowboat. The nose is brine, gorse, and honey. The taste starts off citrusy, but gives way to brininess and a subtle smokiness while holding a touch of red apples. The red apple note continues through the finish with touches of cinnamon and brine.
