Pittyvaich 30 Year (2020 Special Release)
Pittyvaich // Speyside, Scotland
Pittyvaich 30 Year is one of eight single malt Scotch whiskies in Diageo's 2020 Special Release Collection. Crafted by master blender Dr. Craig Wilson, the theme for this year's collection is "Rare by Nature." Pittyvaich 30 Year is finished in first-fill ex-bourbon barrels, a first for this distillery. It is bottled at a natural cask strength of 50.8% ABV. Pittyvaich closed its doors in 1993 and this single malt was distilled in 1989. This bottling is the only one in the collection to come from a ghost, or closed, distillery. Availability is limited to 7,056 bottles in the US, Europe, Canada, Australia, South Africa, select Asian markets and airport duty free in late fall 2020.
