Rarest of the rare, an official Pittyvaich! This one is well worth waiting for, light and airy, like a Lowlands whisky, with huge fruit and burnt sugar notes. With water (and it needs water) and time, it opens up, becoming sweeter and fruitier, with even huger notes of strawberries and something like cherries. Very good, and I think this is really worthwhile at its current price.


I like this a lot.
