Pinwinnie

by Bill Watkins
(River Edge, NJ USA)

I first discovered Pinwinnie in 1969. I have to say I fell in love.


It's a whisky steeped in centuries of history and legend, Pinwinnie Royale Scotch Whisky can lay claim to both regal and ecclesiastic legacies.

Packaged in a splendid and unmistakeable proprietary bottle, Pinwinnie is a mature whisky with a rich, distinguished character blended from only the finest malt and grain whiskies.

Nose - Smooth, mellow with sweet, fragrant notes. Colour - Pale gold, straw like appearance.
Taste - Aromatic, well rounded with a smooth dry finish.

Since then I have taken it upon myself to convert every Scotch drinker I know to Pinwinnie. To drink it was to love it.

I was declared a disabled vet a decade and a half ago and now I can't drink. Boy how I miss it.

One bit of confusion for me is that when I first started drinking it, it was described as a single malt. My eldest says it became a blend at some point. Confusing!

Can't drink it anymore, but I can certainly breath in the aroma!

I would urge anyone to give it a try.

My husband bought me a bottle of Pinwinnie (then a single malt) some 40 years ago in NZ.
I still have the lovely purple drawstring cloth bag it came in and the metal shield that was around the neck of the bottle.
Velvet smooth. Have never seen it since in Australia.

My first whisky - Pinwinnie NEW
by: Mario Azevedo

When I was about 12 years old my dad let me try a sip of the Pinwinnie he had been importing directly from Scotland. I fell in love with it instantly, and as 51 year old man I am a Scotch drinker. I owe it to my dad, and that fabulous Pinwinnie. I wish someone would bring it back - it truly was an experience, and one of the best whisky's I've ever had.

I also bought Pinwinnie when I lived in NJ, that was in the early '70's. Can not find it now. I think you have to try to buy on the internet.

Please tell me, where can Pinwinnie be purchased?

As you, I love it, but haven't found it in any liquor stores.

Used to buy it in New Jersey years ago, but I now live in Florida, and I really miss drinking Pinwinnie.
