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. The term "peatrichor" describes the scent of rain on earthy soil on Islay. It rains very often on the island, yet the inhabitants value the water very highly. Because the water is also used for whiskey production. Without the addition of colorants as well as cold filtration and bottled at natural cask strength. As natural as it gets. - Douglas Laing Bottled: 2021 Limited to 5190 bottles. Tasting notes:Color: gold. Nose: Oil, sea breeze, fresh leather. Taste: Rich, earthy notes, peat, smoke.
