Congrats to top distillery, and friend of Looking for the Postman, Old Pulteney after their 1989 Vintage whisky was crowned the ‘World’s Best Single Malt’.

Old PulteneyThe award was announced at Whisky Magazine’s prestigious World Whiskies Awards, last night in London.

It’s tough to even get considered for a nomination and with plenty of tough competition, the context of this award is clear.

Old Pulteney 1989 Vintage was first release just last September. Its distinctive smoky character comes from maturation in hand-selected American oak ex-bourbon barrels, which previously held heavily peated malt. Each distinctively designed bottle of 1989 Vintage is natural in colour, non-chill filtered and bottled at 46%.

Old Pulteney are no strangers to awards. Their 21 Year Old Single Malt holds the coveted title of ‘World Whisky of the Year’ for 2012 in Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible – one of the industry’s highest accolades.

So well done to our Wick whisky winners, Old Pulteney, for their tremendous success!
