Big Peat is a remarkable marriage of Malt Whiskies only from the island of Islay. He is, of course, proudly without colouring or chill-filtration and bottled at high alcohol strength (46%), resulting in a naturally oily spirit that promises an incredible mouth-feel. With Caol Ila spirit bringing sweetness, Bowmore the perfect balance, Ardbeg the medicinal, earthy quality and Port Ellen, a degree of elegance, Big Peat represents all that is Islay in a bottle. Fred Laing tells us that of course, there are a couple of Blender’s Secrets in Big Peat too – but even after a few drams, he won’t share that info – and so it remains our peaty little secret!
Opens fresh, salty and clean, and develops to malted barley dried over peat. A damp, earthy character that’s immediately punchy. On the palate you’ll detect ashes, sweet tar, beaches and smoking chimneys. A long and lingering finish with salty, tangy licorice, smoke and yet more bonfire ashes.
