Product description

Big Peat: A small batch bottling traditionally non chill-filtered, not coloured and containing ONLY Islay Malt Whiskies! But what exactly is a Vatted Malt? It is what the Scotch Whisky industry has traditionally called “a marriage of Malts”. Big Peat contains Malt Whisky ONLY from the island of Islay – some say it’s the ultimate taste of Islay… we’d be bound to agree! With a PPM of 40, Big Peat is a feisty Islay character but with a sweet side too – ‘he’ carries a big peaty (“phenolic”), beachy, oceanic, rather ashy selection of malts only from the magical Whisky Island of Islay… Ardbeg, Caol Ila, Bowmore and (even the now closed) Port Ellen to name but a few! We do not chill-filter – we prefer a more old fashioned traditional approach – so you will detect a massive amplification of sea-faring qualities on the nose, palate, and finish… Nose: Fresh, salty and clean, developing to malted barley dried over peat with a damp earthy character Palate: Ashes, sweet tar, beaches and smoking chimneys Finish: Long and lingering, it replicates the palate with salty, tangy liquorice, smoke, bonfire ashes - being foremost: PHENOLIC Get to know him better…
