Pittyvaich 29 Year Old 2019 Release 51.4%
A cask strength, double sherry matured 29 year old from the long closed Pittyvaich distillery, released as part of Diageo's Special Releases for 2019.
Distilled in 1989 at Pittyvaich distillery, which was only open for 18 years before closing in 1993. This release was double matured in pedro ximenez and oloroso casks.
The producer's tasting note:
"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."
