  1. Kimba scored this whisky 88 points Expert Junior

    I think I know why the Pitty comes here so "bad" way. Yesterday, when I dipped my nose in the glass very quickly after pouring, I noticed a very disturbing smell of "fermented cabbage".
    Such a blatant bad note I had so far in any whisky!
    There were also always the sweet bright red fruits, vanilla, a little oak and as I find a little smoke, but the false note remained ...
    I think you could call it sourdough. I was not sure, but I know the smell from the kitchen ...
    After 15 minutes, this smell disappeared slowly and after 20 minutes it was completely gone ...
    From there, the Pittyvaich was a very fruity, slightly smoky, complex and above all very delicious fellow.

    After 20 minutes plus he gets 88 points from me. I think the 90 are in it if I give him more time directly.
