1 of only 7056 bottles relased worldwide of this rare whisky.
Single malt from the Pittyvaich is always a rare and exciting sight, and this one here released as part of Diageo's 2020 Special Releases is certainly exciting indeed! It's a 30 year old expression, fully matured in first-fill ex-bourbon casks! Oodles of tropical fruit notes to enjoy here, along with soft linseed oil and peppery vanilla notes in support. 7,056 bottles were produced.
Nose: A celebration of tropical fruit, with oodles of green banana, papaya, juicy pineapple and yellow melon. There's a wonderful leafy green quality too, plus a gentle toasted oak quality.
Palate: An oily and unctuous dram, with a creamy vanilla ice cream note especially prominent. There's some Victoria sponge cake in there, along with a dash of red fruits, and a gentle cinnamon lift.
Finish: Short-to-medium, with more cinnamon and papaya notes.
Overall: An enchanting expression from a much-loved but long-closed distillery.
