Big Peat, Big Feet, Big Neat. 

Founded in 1948 by Fred Douglas, the Glasgow-based Douglas Laing & Co bottling company is now run by his two sons. They have amassed a vast stock of different malts over the last 50 years.
 
Big Peat is a Blended Malt Whisky (a mixture of single Malt Whiskies that contains no grain Whisky or a marriage of Malts as the Scotch Whisky industry has traditionally called it), a blend of Ardbeg, Bowmore, Caol Ila and Port Ellen. No chill filtration takes place, but a more old fashioned traditional approach, which amplifies the sea-faring qualities on the nose, palate, and finish. Quite phenolic.

What does Big Peat taste like?

The Flavour Spiral™ shows the most common flavours that you'll taste in Big Peat and gives you a chance to have a taste of it before actually tasting it.

We invented Flavour Spiral™ here at Flaviar to get all your senses involved in tasting drinks and, frankly, because we think that classic tasting notes are boring.

Tasting Notes

Appearance / Color
Riesling.

Smell / Nose / Aroma
Phenolic. Lemon zest and hints of chocolate, toffee, almonds and coffee. Delicate floral and fruit notes behind the smoke.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
Salty and Spicy, notes of heavy smoke, oak roasted salmon oiliness, sweet carrots and cut grass.
 
Finish
Long, peaty and dry. Tarry smoke turning ashy later on. It leaves your mouth dry and wanting some water.
