A combination of citrus and ripe pear followed by smoky spice, toffee and vanilla. Big , full mouth with lots of deep flavour including sweet malt, toffee and ripe orange. Just enough sweetness to give full rounded feel. Winner of a silver medal in both the International wines & spirits Competition 2006 and the San Francisco World Spirits Competition 2006. Poit Dhubh, pronounced potch ghoo and literally meaning black pot, is also the gaelic term for an illicit still which traditionally were the source of some of the most revered whiskies. Unwilling either to confirm or deny that Poit Dhubh comes from an illicit still. It is a fine unchilfiltered malt at 43%, partly matured in sherry casks with a soft graceful flavour and a trace of peatiness.
