    whiskyfun:

    Pittyvaich-Glenlivet 11 yo 1977/1989 (56.6%, Cadenhead, black dumpy) Colour: pale gold. Nose: huge highland style, powerful, grassy and a tad both buttery and gingery. Very austere whisky when undiluted, even if some notes of gooseberries and apples do start to fly around after a while. Sour apples. With water: freshly grassy, with a little dill and mint as well as hints of sandalwood and incense, the whole getting more and more flowery now. Mouth (neat): rich and quite fat, powerful, with a lot of apples once again and then white pepper and something slightly bubblegummy. Goes on with some pear eau-de-vie. With water: not more complex but better polished, getting as smooth as a fruit liqueur. Maybe hints of bananas. Finish: rather long, mainly on green bananas and vanilla. Some coconut in the aftertaste. Comments: nice development from rather extreme grassiness to smooth fruitiness – with the help of a little water. SGP:461 - 84 points
