Whisky Reviews for Pittyvaich 1993 GM

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 81.05 points

  1. Carsten scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Pittyvaich, 1993-2005, 12y, G & M Connoceurs Choice, 43% Color: pale yellow Nose: Very sweet, artificial fruit flavors, golden bears pure, as soon as the gold bears have volatilized dominate grassy notes, nuts, some machine oil. After some time, the gold bears gather in the glass again, great Body: medium / oily Mouth: mild and sweet, honey, vanilla, some dry wood and herbs Appearance: medium, mild, herbs dominate and last pinches dry wood. Conclusion: 85P, actually the nose would deserve 90P, but in the mouth he lets up. Nevertheless, a super exciting dram.

  2. markjedi1 scored this whisky 74 points Connoisseur

    This is all very
    light and unimpressive, though. Thanks, Arnout, for the sample.
    • Nose
      The nose is rather
      young on yeast and grist. Some lime peel, apple juice and vanilla biscuits.
      Peanuts. Touch of smoke. Garden herbs. Dried grass. Somewhat underwhelming.
    • Taste
      It is soft (make that
      light) at first. A bit more fresh and sweet now. Sugared pear. Sugar candy?
      More spices, now. Some white pepper pushes forward.
    • Finish
      The rather short
      finish brings back pears and pepper, as well as that tiny bit of smoke.

  3. Feusi scored this whisky 79 points Connoisseur

    Actually, easy drinking, but has little bitter oily notes on the palate, which can perhaps hold a newcomer.

  4. aprager scored this whisky 80 points Expert Junior

    A bit unusal (in a good way)
    • Nose
      Fruity, grass, nuts. With water some smoke and vanilla
    • Taste
      Fresh, butter, pepper, spicey
    • Finish
      Medium with a hint of woodfire smoke
