Dufftown may be a mecca for international whisky enthusiasts thanks to its wealth of distilleries, but there are a few really popular producers that have fallen by the wayside, like Pittyvaich. But there’s no need to cry into your dram glass, as a few clever Scot’s kept some casks for a rainy day and bottled them in 2015. The result is this 25-Year-Old single malt, from 1989, which features a special release of 5,999 individually numbered bottles - and will be of particular interest to fans of (rare) Flora and Fauna bottling.
Flavour Profile: Nose
Fragrant cereal and an essence of violet petals begin the sweet aromatic journey. There's a syrupy, yet creamy and mild peppery nature which steps back to reveal a high sharp note.
Flavour Profile: Palate
Intertwined with fruit skins, florals and malt, the palate embraces a heavy and rich natural waxiness at the end.
Flavour Profile: Finish
Light oak notes overlay white and dark chocolate tones for the tempered finish.
