Pittyvaich 29 Year Old
 51.4%   |    70cl

A 1989 ghost, double matured in Pedro Ximenez & Oloroso sherry seasoned casks. A ‘ghost’ or closed distillery that worked for 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. Only 4,976 bottles available of this extremely rare high-aged whisky.

Information

Distillery: Pittyvaich

Age: 29 years old

Strength: 51.4%

Region: Speyside

Appearance

Deep gold, with orange lights. Very good beading.

Nose

A mellow nose overall, with very light prickle; lightly nose drying, with first faint and delicate impressions of fruitiness and dried flowers, beneath which there’s a note of buttery sponge. A drop of water enhances the dried flowers, brings up the sweetness and adds spicy touches of sweet ginger and hardwood shavings.

Palate

At natural strength, mouth-filling and ultra-smooth in texture. The taste is immediately rich and very sweet, with light dried fruits; golden sultanas in light liquor. It quickly becomes spicy, with tannic gunpowder tea in mid palate, and is drying overall. Similar though softer with water, when sweet toffee can be discerned.

Finish

Long, smooth and spicy, finishing with a shake of powdered ginger and a lingering, embracing warmth. With water, smoother.
