Poit Dhubh 21 year old Malt Whisky
Old discontinued bottling from the 1990’s of Poit Dhubh 21 year old Malt Whisky in beautiful wooden presentation box.
Pronounced “Potch Ghoo,” or PD for short, it means Illicit Still in Gaelic.
The recipe is secret and was first created in 1984 from a very high quality mixture of Islay, Island, Highland & Speyside malts.
The flavour blends Islay peatiness & Speyside sweetness for a uniquely ‘sweetly peaty’ taste profile much less powerful than normal Islay whisky.
An Unchilfiltered malt, so may become hazy if cold but this delivers a richer, fuller flavour with a longer after-taste as a result.

Finish: Tremendous length on the palate
