The Distillery closed its gates in 1993 after only 18 years distilling. It was demolished in 2003.

Nose: Honey, heather, violets, apples. A very light nose.

Palate: Oranges, caramel, leather, earthy. Quite different from the nose. With water gets citrusy and zesty.

Finish: Rich and spicy

Overall: A really nice whisky, so much different from the F&F edition! Anyone got any spare cash to re-build Pittyvaich? Lucas?

Who’s it going to be? I am going to pick an Album. Urban Hymns by the Verve. Great Album, but never followed by anything brilliant.

Ps: Keep your eyes peeled for a cheep bottle if you like collecting. I don’t have the self control personally…
