You can’t get more quintessentially Islay than this.

The Douglas Laing Company was founded in 1948 by — you guessed it — Douglas Laing. They have a stellar reputation as one of the leading independent bottlers of Scotch Whisky in the United Kingdom. They started as by purchasing single casks of fine Single Malts. Then they grew to create their own blends. Now they even commission small batch production from some of the finest Whisky makers in Scotland and a few small shops too. This has allowed them to develop a solid range of private-label products to round out the offerings.

Big Peat 12 Year Old marries different Single Malt Scotches from the one-and-only island of Islay. Sweet notes of Caol Ila, balanced flavors of Bowmore, medicinal notes of Ardbeg, and the earthy quality of Port Ellen, you can’t have more Islay in one offering. Weighing in at 46% ABV and without added coloring or chill-filtration, expect pure and bold flavors of charred oak, chimney smoke, rock pools, and summer tar to rock your taste buds. A quintessentially Islay offering everybody should taste at least once.

Scotch Whisky is seldom aged in new barrels. Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey casks are usually used for maturation. In addition to that, Whisky is often matured or finished in various wine casks such as Sherry or Port.
Categories of Scotch Whisky: Single malt, Blended malt (formerly called Vatted malt), blended, single grain and blended grain Scotch.
Blended Whiskies are the result of years of craftsmanship and dedication. A master blender does not simply wake up one day with a profound ability to create a cohesive and enjoyable liquid. From nosing the liquid to working out quantities of each different grain and malt to go into the blend, a master blender can take years, if not decades, to train.
Whisky distilling goes way back to 1494 when the first recorded batch was made by a posse of monks who acquired about 60 gallons of barley and decided to turn it into "aqua vitae". They created the first 1,500 bottles of Scotch in History.
Scotland is home to more than 20 million casks of maturing Whisky. That’s four for every person living there. Nuts!
90% of all Scotch Whiskies sold are Blends.
