What could follow that? A Pittyvaich perhaps? To the amazement of another bar tender, the owner locates it immediately. Hid behind other bottles on the top shelf, he reaches for it on tip toes, and it’s one I’ve not had before.
N:T:F: I think of Pittyvaich like I do with say Mannochmore or < Linkwood, and this is a prime example. We are too in-depth talking-wise now for proper noting, but that doesn’t stop my enjoyment of the moment from this straight bourbon-matured number with just the right years on the clock to deliver a no fuss, delightfully balanced natural styled dram with a slick wood-oil & grain-oil mouthfeel. Adding even a few drops of water however, disturbs the serpent somewhat. I much preferred it neat.
C: The less you think about this one, the more you’ll enjoy it. One to be devoured if it weren’t for the current market value [£250].
