Poit Dhubh Malt Whisky
Old discontinued bottling from the 1990’s of Poit Dhubh 21 year old Malt Whisky .#
From the 1990’s
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.
