Welcome to enjoy the Old Buck!
European Mainland Whisky of the Year 2009
(awarded by Jim Murray)

Welcome to a fansite about the first Finnish single malt whisky: Old Buck.

Unfortunately, the award-winning Old Buck is not available for sale at the moment but at least two restaurants in the City of Pori sell drams: Beer Hunter's Pub Brewery & Steak and Whisky House Galle. And Galle, by the way, has received a nomination for being one of the best Whisky Restaurants in the world (awarded by the Whisky Magazine).
Congratulations, Galle & Old Buck!!!
