Big Peat from Douglas Laing is a feisty Islay character with a sweet side. this is a small batch bottling, without colouring or chill-filtration and only contains Islay malt whiskies, including Ardbeg, Caol Ila, Bowmore and port ellen.
Big peat is fresh, salty and clean on the nose, with notes of sweet malts dried over peat. Typically islay in flavour, the palate carries notes of ash, sweet tar, smoking chimneys and subtle salty beach quality, with a long and lingering phenolic finish.
