This elusive 1989 Pittyvaich from the last remaining stocks is the first ever to be finished in first-fill ex-bourbon casks. This Speyside gem is a closed distillery, and until now familiar only to a knowledgeable few. Part of the Diageo Special Releases 2020 range, this is a very rare and limited high-aged release of only 7,056 bottles.
Aromas of sweet oak, delicate ripe fruitiness and dried flowers leap from the glass. The palate is soft and silky, the sweet taste rich in notes of vanilla that perfectly match the classic green, creamy and fruity distillery character. It becomes drying in the development, while the smooth, warming finish closes with a final sweet flourish.
