A ‘ghost’ or closed distillery that worked only 18 years, before falling victim to industry consolidation in 1993, Pittyvaich has now vanished. Its dwindling stock is as rarely sighted today as the shy capercaillie found in Scottish pineforests. This small batch of 1989 Pittyvaich is the first release double matured in Pedro Ximenez and Oloroso seasoned casks.
These have brought an exotic, rich, fruity depth to the light, golden aromas and flavours of the distillery character. The aroma is mellow yet shy, with delicate fruitiness and dried flowers, beneath which lies a note of buttery sponge. The texture is ultra-smooth, the taste rich with the dried fruit sweetness of golden sultanas. It becomes spicy with gunpowder tea and is drying overall. The long, smooth finish closes in a shake of powdered ginger. A very rare high-aged release of only 4,976 bottles available from a closed distillery. Part of a collection of eight limited-edition cask strenght whiskies. The perfect gift for whisky lovers.
An exotic, unusual and long-aged example of this uncommon malt from a long closed distillery
