    From Whiskyfun,

    Pittyvaich 26 yo 1974 (55.8%, Kingsbury for Japan, 514 bottles) Colour: deep amber with bronze hues. Nose: this is a different story! Superb, starting on litres of argan oil with a fantastic smokiness. Goes on with pecan pie, toasted brioche, maple syrup, chestnut honey, apricot jam… Just brilliant… and the beautiful smokiness… Keeps developing on cooked strawberries, blackcurrants, and then we have the peat as well as notes of freshly squeezed oranges. A fabulous nose. Mouth: very rich as expected, powerful, on all kinds of honeys, dried oranges, rum, raisins, but gets then a little too bitter and quit drying… Bitter chocolate, caramel, candid citron… The palate is definitely simpler than the nose but still extremely enjoyable. Gets smokier and smokier, with quit some peat it seams. Lots of fir honey too… And then we have a long, coating finish, on sherry, strong honey and quit some salt… A brilliant Pittyvaich, that’s for sure. 92 points.
