Old Pulteney to withdraw 17 YO and 21 YO

Highland Single Malt Old Pulteney will soon be discontinuing its 17-year-old and 21-year-old expressions because of a lack of stock. The brand does not have any plans to replace these with no age statement (NAS) products.

The last bottles of the 21-year-old are currently entering the supply chain, while stocks of Old Pulteney’s 17-year-old expression are expected to last into the second quarter of 2018. Details of further changes to the Old Pulteney range — which also includes the core 12-year-old, unaffected by the move — are yet to be released. However, it is believed that replacement products will have age statements, with no plans to increase the number of NAS expressions.

Supplies of Old Pulteney 21-year-old have been on allocation since it was named ‘World’s Best Whisky’ by Jim Murray in his Whisky Bible 2012.
