    Old, flowery whisky that comes across as full-bodied. Only a slight bitterness in the finish. Doesn't need water.

  8. tw_xbein scored this whisky 86 points Expert Junior

    nice tasty whisky (9.4.2010)
    • Nose
      86 86
      strong alcoholic nose due to the barrel filling, aromas of hay, meadow, herbs and light fruits
    • Taste
      88 88
      Aromas of lemon, heather, malt, light fruits
    • Finish
      84 84
      rather short, lovely malty

  9. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    To me clearly underestimated, but on the other hand I can understand it. He has very special own notes, which I find very exciting in Malts, but certainly some can bring out.
    • Nose
      Very freshly chopped, intensive oak, pollen, grasses, violets, moss, pebbles, rough, untanned leather, chalk, lead, grated coconut, some chestnut and spicy ginger, more mineral notes
    • Taste
      Ginger, mint and wasabi, nice green notes at the front, green peppers and star fruit, kiwi, apricot, then again fresh wood shavings, anise, pine nuts, olives, pistachio, light pinch of salt
    • Finish
      Vanilla, honey, lychee, oak and malt will be more light and sweet here

    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].
