PUNI 4 Year Old 2012 (Master of Malt)
You Save: £10.00
This dram comes from the very first Italian whisky distillery, PUNI! Relatively new on the whisky scene, production at PUNI began in the spring of 2012. While the distillery uses traditional pot stills from Scotland, its water is sourced from the local Stelvio National Park. Its name comes from the river Puni, which flows through the valley.
This particular release was independently-bottled by Master of Malt (the brains behind Pour & Sip!), and is a blended whisky produced from a trio of grains: malted barley, malted rye, and malted wheat. Before bottling the whisky was treated to a finish in a pinot noir barrique, imparting rich red fruit and subtly drying spice notes.
Dark chocolate, dried red berries, tart raspberry, vanilla, dry oak spice, and creamy almond.
White chocolate appears now, with strawberries in icing sugar and sweet peach, balanced by freshly cracked pepper heat.
Spices appear – namely woody cinnamon and nutmeg, with toasty malt.
