Pittyvaich 28 (2018 Edition). Image courtesy Diageo. Pittyvaich Distillery was only open between 1975 and 1993, and this whisky was distilled in 1989 and matured in refill American Oak hogsheads. The nose has notes of lemon candies, butterscotch, toasted oak, vanilla, and a hint of blackberries. The taste is thick, oily, and spicy with cinnamon, lemon zest tartness, oak tannins, and dark chocolate in the background. The finish is long with lingering spices and hints of butterscotch and honey. (September, 2018)
