Notes taken at a Diageo ‘2015 release’ tasting with Colin Dunn
Colin Dunn offered a two week holiday in Cuba for anyone who could tell him what Pittyvaich (Pitty-vake, like cake) meant.
- N: Nosing this, it’s not a complex nose. With familiar mash notes and a touch of rawness about it, this is a natural Speyside whisky.
- T: Beefy mash, savoury, rich. Lovely to drink.
- F: …… more malty porridge.
- C: Pittyvaich means,….. who knew? No one but Colin on the night which must have been a relief to him. It means, ‘place of the cowshed’.
