This release from the Orphan Barrel Whiskey Co. comes from now-defunct Scotch whisky distillery Pittyvaich, which closed in 1993. The distillery was only operational for 18 years, so its single malt releases are hard to come by, and now, none younger than 25 years remain in barrels. This 26-year-old release also marks Orphan Barrel's first single malt.

Tasting Notes

"Beguiling array of sweet aromas - maple syrup, honey and butterscotch, even French toast - begin the layers of aromas and flavors, shifting down into smokey peat and spicy pepper. Silky, malty and lots of appetizing acidity, and a lengthy and finish left behind on the lips and tongue. Excellent."
