Poit Dhubh 8 Year Old Bottling Note

A blended malt, Poit Dhubh is a mellow, lightly peated whisky that comprises mostly of Talisker, which reflects the fact its parent company, Pràban, is based on the Isle of Skye. The remainder of the blend is composed of various Speyside malts which imparts and matured partly in sherry casks which lends it they typically rich flavours you would expect.

Poit Dhubh si pronounced "potch ghoo" and means "black pot", which is the gaelic term for an "illicit still".

It comes unchilfiltered at 43%.

Poit Dhubh 8 Year Old Reviews

Top quality. Buy one.

This is good stuff. Better than any Johnnie Walker. A testament to not using chill filtration!

Chilli Addict

A neighbour recently gave me a bottle and, despite a wide selection of fine malts on my shelf, I find myself returning to this one and pouring slightly oversized drams. The nose is a gentle but pleasing whiff of cereal, fruit and nuts, with the faintest whiff of peat. The palate starts along similar lines, but then a spicy heat develops and it is this that keeps me coming back. If you enjoy spicy curries and find that heat strangely more-ish, then this might be right up your street. Most of my regular drams are older and more complex than this one, but it’s addictive chilli personality and value for money make it a very solid four star rating for me.
