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!
Non chill-filtered 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
