Poit Dhubh 21 year old Blended Malt, 43%

Price: $120 ● Issue: Fall 2013 ● Reviewer: Dominic Roskrow

Pronounced “Pot Doo,” this is without doubt a rugged coastal and/or island whisky, but on a mild and temperate day. Salt, spice, and peat are all to the fore, but it's a gentle giant of a whisky, with some citrus drizzle and a light honeycomb heart. The main wood influence seems to soften the delivery so that the punch it packs won't floor you. Beautifully put together, though.
