Taking its name from the nearby Puni river that flows through the Venosta valley the Puni Distillery in "The Italian Highlands" town of Glorenza is Italy's first malt whisky producer. The stunning distillery combines Scottish tradition with state of the art technology to exercise the utmost control and consistency over the distillation process. The pure Apline waters and wide temperature swings make this an ideal place for whisky production. The end result is a range of whiskies that have racked up many gold medals and high scores from numberous publicatios and competitions. Made from their unique triple malt mashbill of local malted rye, malted barley, and malted wheat the Sole bottling has been aged first in ex-Bourbon casks and then sees equal time in Pedro Ximenez casks before bottling. Notes from the distillery: "Sole means 'sun' in Italian and reflects two crucial stages in Sherry making. After harvesting, the grapes are dried under the hot Spanish sun, concentrating their sweetness. The wine from these grapes is then aged for many years in frequently changing oak casks. This ancient maturation method is called solera."
The taste is distinctively sweet with strong notes of honey and blood orange, that are counterpointed by creamy flavours of walnut and spicy oak.

Sunshine and sugar - they go hand in hand. The raisined grapes used to make PX leave a distinct flavor behind in the whisky, sweetening the dram like a fine summer day. Golden repeatedly comes to mind while tasting. It's golden in color and tastes like liquid gold might if that were a thing you'd eat. It's fresh and vibrant but sweet and supple. The finish lingers like a fond memory. An excellent whisky.
