Independent Bottlers

G&M, 'Connoisseur's Choice' Pittyvaich, distilled 1993, 40% ABV

Typical cost of this bottle;


Glass: Spiegelau

Colour: Very pale yellow

Nose: Fresh malt with strong hints of spirit

Palate: Really quite smooth with hints of very fresh liquorice, a little spice and fading with an almost nutty maltiness

With 3 drops of water: Initially smoother with a little more liquorice, but a much shorter finish.

Finish: Quite long (without water)

Overall Impression: A little too fresh with depth of flavour missing, although it does have a long finish.
