Old Pulteney From Wick, Scotland: World’s Best Whisky According to Jim Murray’s 2012 Whisky Bible

Monday, October 24th, 2011

A single malt whisky distilled in one of Scotland’s most remote areas, has been named the world’s best whisky by a leading expert.  According to Jim Murray’s 2012 Whisky Bible a single malt from Wick called Old Pulteney has won the title of the World’s Best Whisky.

Mr. Murray said: “The 21-year-old Old Pulteney absolutely exploded from the glass with vitality, charisma and class, and I hope that this award helps one of Scotland’s great unsung distilleries to become discovered around the world.”

Talisker, Isle of Skye

I visited the Isle of Skye a few years back and had the great pleasure of quaffing Talisker with only a splash of pure water. It is the only distillery on the Isle of Skye and founded in 1830. You should drink this single malt Scotch Whisky straight (neat) or with bit of water; no ice, no soda, please.
