A third entry in the Diageo Special Releases for Pittyvaich. It's a rare whisky to see as the distillery was closed in 1993 and very few casks have made it out into the wild. Fortunately, Diageo have dropped another 1989-vintage edition in the Special Releases, giving us a chance to try the distillery's idiosyncratic style. It was matured in refill American-oak hogsheads and the gentle wood influence has revealed a core of fruity spirit.Tasting Notes (1)

Tasting note by Billy Abbott, The Whisky Exchange
Mixed peel, apple and mint. Candied orange builds along with distillery aromas: it's all about the washbacks. Zingy fruit and yeasty funk with a background of sultanas and grapes. Like leaning over a fully fermented washback and taking a deep breath.
Thick and oily on the tongur. The apples are back, as is the yeastiness. There's a background of spice along with fruity touches – pineapple juice drunk from the tin, freshly sliced Granny Smith apples and a touch of unripe mango.
Mint and orange zest with a touch of yeastiness.
Weird definitely describes this, but not in a bad way. The washback notes were unexpected but a nice surprise, balancing fruit, oaky spice and a touch of dryness.
