Pittyvaich 30 y.o. (Cask Strength) - Special Release 2020

Profile Single Malt
Region Scotland
Body Whiskey

Opened in 1975, Pittyvaich was to become one of the shortest-lived distilleries ever built on Speyside, which contributes greatly to interest in it today. Built by Arthur Bell and Sons to partner their neighbouring Dufftown distillery, it eventually became surplus to requirements, so closed in 1993 and has long been demolished. As an ultra-modern Speyside distillery built with an eye to the traditions and expertise of the past, the spirit made at Pittyvaich is of special interest, yet releases are extremely rare. Like other more famous Whiskey legends, it had a short life, but left a lasting and distinct legacy.

Tasting Notes

Product Notes
This elusive 1989 Pittyvaich from the last remaining stocks is the first ever to be finished in first-fill ex-bourbon casks. This finely crafted finishing has brought an exotic, rich vanilla sweetness to the light, creamy, fruity aromas and flavours of a less well known Speyside gem, until now familiar only to a knowledgeable few. Aromas of sweet oak, delicate ripe fruitiness and dried flowers leap from the glass. The texture is soft and silky, the sweet taste rich in notes of vanilla that perfectly match the classic green, creamy and fruity distillery character.
