Big Peat is a compilation of single malt Scotch whiskies that come exclusively from the island of Islay. Caol Ila brings sweetness, Bowmore perfect balance, Ardbeg a medicinal, earthy quality, and Port Ellen a measure of elegance - Big Peat represents all that is Islay in a bottle. As part of Douglas Laing's Remarkable Regional Malts range, it represents the ultimate distillation of the Islay malt whisky region of Scotland.
