Scotch Whisky - Blended Malt - 2014
International Wine & Spirit Competition
Interesting fact… Poit Dhubh 12 Year Old whisky spells its name whisky as it originates in Scotland. Had it been produced in America its name would be Poit Dhubh 12 Year Old whiskey, instead of whisky.
Arrival is all Oloroso sherry with lovely toffee and dried fruits. The long finish is a blast of smokey peat. However, this is no Lagavulin 16 as the elements are not so well integrated, nor does it have Laga's complexity or age. However it is about £20 a bottle cheaper. Blended in the Isle of Skye may well include some Talisker. Bottled unchillfiltered at 43% it is a great find and very good value.
