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.
Out of stock Oooops.

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.

Antti,
It is a very good, rich, big bodied, vatted malt with a long, peaty & dry death.
