Artist Collective 4.0 Distilled At Pulteney 12 YO 2008


Burnished gold

Rich, concentrated. The eminently salty first nose wonderfully expresses Pulteney’s “coastal” character. Allowed to breathe, candied fruits (apple, pear) and citrus fruits (lemon, orange) gradually return to the surface of the aromatic palette. Then, walnut, almond, curry and salted butter caramel highlight the wonderful influence of the sherry, notably evoking the softness and oily character of a manzanilla. Also worth noting is the presence of superb herbaceous and malted notes (moss, tobacco).

Mineral, full of energy. Carrying on perfectly from the nose, the attack focuses on aromatic plants (sage, verbena), as barley grains literally spread across the palate. The extremely harmonious mid-palate is divinely salty. Lingering, dried apple and candied pear bring lots of smoothness to a palette of flavours that becomes increasingly tangy (lemon zest, grapefruit).

Long, invigorating. The resolutely marine finish also bursts with spices (star anise, pepper, ginger, nutmeg). Gradually, subtle milky (coconut) and vanilla notes gently develop the very end of the palate towards a more malty and at the same time deliciously woody (reed, rush) register. On the retro-nasal olfaction, a gentle marine breeze takes us to the seaside. The empty glass emphasizes spices (cinnamon, saffron).

Distillery Profile:
In the same way, each of the single malts found in our new Artist Collective range draws the richness of their olfactory and gustatory palettes from the marriage of various casks. Devoted to diversity, every region and every style of Scottish single malt, peated and unpeated, are represented.

Within this range we also find 43%, 48%, 57.1% (100 proof) and cask-strength bottlings. To illustrate the labels of the seven bottlings in our second collection, La Maison du Whisky has called on contemporary artists from very different backgrounds. Each of them brings their own very personal touch that echoes the richness of the single malts selected!
