Pittyvaich 25 Year Old Whisky
Part of Diageo's Special Releases 2015. Lots of nutty cereal and almond notes, with mango and lemon tart. Very moreish.
About the BrandThe Pittyvaich distillery was only open between 1975 and 1993 so it’s not really surprising bottlings are rarely seen. Apparently Pittyvaich had shorter fermentation times than other distilleries, and the stills were run a bit stronger, giving a ‘more flavoursome’ spirit

Nose: Flowers and nuts off the bat – honeysuckle, rose, hazelnuts and almonds. Sweetness develops, with the almonds gaining a sugary shell, a sprinkling of icing sugar and a balancing squeeze of lemon. Polished tables, with a hint of beeswax, sit behind the sweetness along with sweet white grape juice.
Palate: Sharp and spicy to start, with little of the nose's sweet and floral character. However, with some time in the glass and a drop of water, the freshly sawn oak and sappy twigs soften to reveal sweet and zesty apples and spice – cinnamon and nutmeg.
Finish: Spiced apple and its skin, slowly fading to liquorice and black pepper.
