Douglas Laing's - Big Peat Islay Blended Malt Scotch Whisky
Big Peat is a marriage of Single Malt Scotch Whiskies only from the island of Islay. With Caol Ila spirit bringing sweetness, Bowmore the perfect balance, Ardbeg a medicinal, earthy quality and Port Ellen, a degree of elegance, Big Peat represents all that is Islay in a bottle.
Situated off the West coast of Scotland and affectionately known as “The Queen of the Hebrides”, Islay’s Distilleries are renowned for their predominantly peaty, smoky character, all offering variations on the theme of ash, beach bonfires, coal dust and tar. Big Peat captures that archetypal taste of Islay in one truly remarkable bottle.
Opens fresh, salty and clean - developing to sweet malt dried over peat. Aromas of ashes, sweet tar, beaches and smoking chimneys. Long and lingering finish that replicates the palate with salty, tangy liquorice, smoke, bonfire ashes and a phenolic quality.
