Douglas Laing’s Big Peat is a Blended (as we have to call them now) Islay malt containing spirit from Ardbeg, Caol Ila, Bowmore and, shockingly, Port Ellen. Not as full-on as the name might suggest, but with pedigree like that at this price Big Peat is a nailed-on winner. Picked up the top prize in its category at the World Whisky Awards 2010.

Tasting Notes

Nose

Opens fresh, salty and clean, and develops to malted barley dried over peat. A damp, earthy character that’s immediately punchy.

Palate

On the palate you’ll detect ashes, sweet tar, beaches and smoking chimneys.

Finish

A long and lingering finish with salty, tangy liquorice, smoke and yet more bonfire ashes.
