1st place Pittyvaich 30y
2nd place Pittyvaich 28y
3rd place Pittyvaich 29y
Unfortunately, the 29y has no depth and looks rather flat. In my opinion, you could have saved the finish in sherry casks.
The 28y has been one of my favorites for years. Super straight and honest. It convinces with the classic pitty profile and a pure Bourbon barrel maturation.
The 30y manages to beat the 28y because it offers more depth and sweetness than the 28y. Here the finish in Fresh Bourbon Casks seems to have paid off after spending almost 30y in refill Bourbon Casks.
Unfortunately, the Pittyvaich 30 is also the most expensive at € 400 or more (Pittyvaich 28y is € 280 or more). However, if you consider that it is a 30y Closed Distillery original bottling, you could almost be weak again. Since the circulation is large enough, there is no need to panic buying :-)
