The Son is back to redeem you

Here’s a fancy phrase for you: omne trium perfectum. It means everything that comes in threes is perfect. That’s why they only made three parts of Back to the Future. Son of a Peat, a Members' exclusive private label inspired by the Flaviar community is back for the third time. It's unique in its own ways but unmistakably SOP.

BATCH 03 The Redeemer is a wonderfully dark and powerful addition that turns the series into a trilogy. The twelve-Whisky blend combines the magic of Islay, Speyside, the Islands, and the Highlands in one diabolical Spirit.

Like its predecessors, Son of a Peat III was bottled at the peak of its power - at cask strength, clocking at a vigorous 53.8% ABV. It's as authentic as they come: no added color and non-chill filtered. Hand-blended, hand-bottled, hand-sealed, and hand-labeled.

Everyone’s been saying these are unprecedented times. Well, then it’s time for an unprecedented Whisky. Where there’s fire, there's smoke, so join the shadowy side of Scotch. Submerge yourself in the Son of a Peat’s dark brooding soul and experience his brilliance and passionate insanity. He will be with you in spirit every time you pop the cork and smell the smoke.

Tasting Notes

What does redemption taste like? Like smoke, of course. Your nose shall be captivated by uncompromising notes of peat, teamed up with earthy hints of smoked meats and a slightly medicinal undercurrent. On your palate, a fierce battle for dominance between warm notes of smoke, oak, nuts, and Sherry, will take place. Peat will prevail, naturally. All will be washed away by an endless finish with notes of chocolate, and a wee bitterish whisper that’ll take you back where everything started: the isle of Islay.
Ratings & Reviews
Robert
Robert,
When I opened this, I though it was good, but I wasn't tempted to buy a second bottle. As I go back to it after 3 months, it has changed, and it's very enjoyable now. The nose is vanilla frosting and warm raisins with light smoke. The palate is fruity and a little coastal at first and then gives way to a solid peat note and finish, but it's not punchy or ashy. Now that these aren't available anymore, I wish I had bought a second...
 
Brian
Brian,
Smoky and delicious...comparable to Lagavulin!
 
Patricia
Patricia,
Very smooth. Not too harsh. A good addition to a “peaty” collection!
 
Ivan
Ivan,
I like the smoky and smell. It has to match burn effect for my taste.
 
Scott
Scott,
A perfect peaty and smooth Scotch Whiskey for my tastes.
 
Mark
Mark,
I've had Islays with a smokey/sweet mix (Ardbeg An Oa and Laphroaig Cairdeas come to mind), and while I liked them, I usually prefer full-throttle peat bombs like Ardbeg Corryvreckan or Laphroaig Cask Strength. SoaP3 combines strong smoke with more distinct sweet, highland flavors than anything I've previously tried though. And it works for me. Every sip is a bit of a roller coaster, and it's a departure from "classic" Islay, so YMMV. But I am enjoying it and find it very pleasant to savor a dram for a while.
 
Jerry
Jerry,
I enjoyed this as something different to offer in my bar selection. If you are not a fan of peated whiskies than I would stay away from this, but since Peat is in the name I would guess you know what you're getting. I provided some drams, some enjoyed it very much where some did not. It is defiantly a bold taste, if you've come this far, then you should get it.
 
Don
Don,
Good, but I like my other Islay choices better. Once warmed in my hand the peaty, smoky fragrance really blossoms. This is love. The bite is more than I prefer. I need to try with an appropriate accompaniment and a splash of water.
 
Paulo
Paulo,
Well put together whisky. It reminds me of some batches of Octomore, where the phenols produce notes that are not that common in other peated whiskies like this oily, damp smoker soot, meats, savory, blue cheese funk. There are some generic fruit notes hidden deep under the bold peat flavors, but I enjoy that. Just like Octomore, I find that a half-ounce pour keeps me entertained for a while and seldom I want a second one.
 
Alexander
Alexander,
A little too much bite compared to most single malts from Islay but good.
 
Douglas
Douglas,
Enjoyed this immensely. It has a bold but complex flavor profile. It is best neat with a few drops of water to express the esters. You need to let the palate explore every sip. It does have a lasting finish.
 
Robert
Robert,
Good flavor, peaty and rich. Not a huge fan of the higher ABV, I expect more flavor bang for that level of alcohol. I would prefer to explore more expressions before I cycled back to buying another bottle. I am curious about the next Batch.
 
NaDonald
NaDonald,
Big bold taste of smoke and peat. Best served with fireside on winter night. Would give the thumbs up for a second bottle.
 
Aaron
Aaron,
Note: Laphroaig 10 is my go-to Son of a Peat Batch 03 is exactly what you you'd expect it to taste like if you you could taste its name. It has a gorgeous and powerful peat flavor which is very well characterized and reasonably dense. The issue for me is that all of the other flavor notes seem to be pretty much nonexistent. There's a tiny bit of a pleasant earthy flavor, but all of the other character usually found in a good, peaty Scotch seems to have been lost. Definitely worth adding to your collection or sipping on if you're in the mood for peat and smoke. The flavor tastes high quality rather than a cheap imitation of another Scotch, but you might be dissatisfied if you're used to a peated drink that has more than one beautiful face. SOAP b.03 might be much better with a drop of water or something, but I've not tried nor do I feel motivated to do so.
 
MARK
MARK,
Unique and definitely peaty. Nice to sip slow and steady.
 
Willie
Willie,
I loved that bottle, very good..
 
Saville
Saville,
It was nice for my reintroduction to a peated scotch. Liked the sweetness to mellow out the smoke and peat flavor. Enjoying it more than I thought I might.
 
Tara
Tara,
Scotch is not for me. Aftertaste is like what a black magic marker smells like. Mixing with ginger ale makes it drinkable, but my Scotch experiment is over. I'll stick to bourbon, mezcal, & tequila.
 
Lance
Lance,
I was really looking for the Peat you find in something like Laphroaig. They made a gallant attempt but it falls quite short.
 
Karen
Karen,
Loved it. Great flavor.
 
Arijit
Arijit,
Loved the peatiness along with the sweetish tinge. Overall it was quite smooth
 
Holly
Holly,
This was way more sweet than peaty for me. I'll probably make mules with it. Glad I tried it though.
 
Shawn
Shawn,
Love the peat. Was worried it would be too much, but it's actually quite smooth.
 
matthew
matthew,
Its not for me, not at all like an octomore peat. Get alot of rubber on nose and taste. This one will just sit on the shelf

Peaty, but not overpowering, a very nice dram

Expected more from it, was actually a little on the sweet side of peat.

Absolutely loved this! Intense Peat just like I like it!

Michael,
I love peaty whisky, and strong. This was both, very delicious. The aroma scared my wife away. More for me!

I love this scotch!!!
 
Anita
Anita,
The scotch lovers enjoyed Batch 1 more so than Batch 3.
 
Eddie
Eddie,
Very smooth for a cask strength whiskey, love the sherry notes and the balanced peaty taste. Warm Creamy finish. This is one of my favorites. May have to get a couple more bottles before they are all gone.
 
Justin
Justin,
Amazingly Peaty!!
 
Stephen
Stephen,
Disappointing. I was expecting more smoke and peat based on other reviews, but this is light and mild. Very smooth, but I would look elsewhere if it's Islay firmness you're after.
 
Joel
Joel,
I bought this to my dad for his birthday. He liked it alot and thought it was a laphroaig at first bcs of it's nice blend of nose, smoke and quality. He also liked the twist of sweetness at the end. To sum up a good buy and present!
 
Latara
Latara,
My Dad is primarily a Bourbon drinker (loved the Corn Trooper), not a big Scotch drinker, but he was impressed with the peatiness and the smoothness. For myself, one of the best Scotch I've tasted. There is a refined smokiness.
 
Alexandra
Alexandra,
Nice peaty scotch. Slight burn, but not unbearable.

Mice peaty scotch. Slight burn, but not unbearable.
 
Tyler

Feels possibly a little young, but overall I do enjoy it a lot.
 
Bob
Bob,
Loved the nose, the smoke and peat rising to meet me. Enjoyed that longer than normal for me before my first taste. Highly pleased with the taste and finish, looking forward to the next release!
 
James
James,
Love Son of Peat: The Redeemer. Warm smoke and rich peat - like falling into a peat bog. I came away with a bit of seaweed and brine in the background. Isla comes through, and there's a hint of pepper as well. I will enjoy working my way through this special malt blend.
 
Michael
Michael,
Good peaty initial taste followed by a good strong smokey after taste. Excellent body and overall experience.
 
Stephen
Stephen,
Crisp smoke and some sea salt on the nose, which comes through nicely on the pallet with smoke and brine but a nice caramel sweetness that reminds me of slightly charred marshmallows roasted on a fire. The finish bring plenty of pepper and spice but it's well-balanced with the former sweetness. A very satisfying dram!
 
Don
Don,
Love it. Once warmed in the hand a wonderful aroma with honey overtones. The warmth softens the bite and the fire. All are quite enjoyable. A real treat.
 
Dance
Dance,
did not disappoint. felt like someone knew what they were doing when they came up with this.
 
Jacob
Jacob,
Honestly really dang good. I did not know what to expect but it is fun. not like overpoweringly smoky in my opinion. A nice sweet finish. I am not an expert on tasting notes but I enjoyed the experience of drinking this whiskey. Great blended scotch I got in late on this but now want to try the previous iterations.
 
James
James,
Fantastic! Now I need to go grab a Laphroaig and a Bowmore and do some comparison tasting - love the smoke, with the sharp finish.
 
David
David,
Two roads diverged in the wood, and I took the one that led to the peat! I LOVE smoky peaty Scotch. My normal home-base is Ardbeg 10. That said, this bottle of Son of a Peat gave notice that there are other options with a good amount of peat, with a fair amount of smoke, but I would admittedly prefer more smoke to smack me in the face the way I like it .. ROUGH! The sherry, earthy and nut is evident in the aftertaste, which leaves a mouth feel with a bit of a shock, though on the lighter side. I am not giving up on my Ardbeg, but am happy that Son of a Peat will be my neighbor .. won't you be my neighbor too ?
 
Richard
Richard,
Great mix of interesting flavors. I don’t get Sherry (like the flavor wheel says) but I get most of the other flavors on the wheel. Nice change of pace from someone who loves peat. The cask strength is a bonus to make the flavors more intense.
 
benjamin
benjamin,
Very reminiscent of Laphroaig, a little lighter color and less leather than the 10. As a peat lover, I’m enjoying it!
 
John
John,
Excellent Scotch Whisky, with a Smokey, Sweet flavor that is addicting. It's not as heavy on the smoke as some of my favorite Scotches; but, it is very, very smooth. Wonderful straight or on the rocks, no need to add water, it's excellent as it is. Anyone complaining about the smokey taste didn't understand "Son of a Peat". They call me Peat Monster in my Scotch Whisky Tasting Club, so...
 
David
David,
This is very good. Not as refined as a good single malt like the Aberfeldy I tried a few months ago, but still very good. Be careful, however. The high proof really sneaks up on you. I had two and I was ready to cry uncle.
 
Michael
Michael,
I love anything peat and this being non-chill and natural color really makes it that much better. It really is a blend of all the peated expression from islay, the islands, and peat from the mainlands. So glad I bought 4 bottles to make up for missing out on the first 2 batches.
 
Rob
Rob,
If this were wine it would be an overly oaked California Chardonnay. Way too heavy on the smoke for my taste.
 
Lynette
Lynette,
I don’t like it at all. Smells like burnt rubber and tastes sorta like it smells.. I have loved ever other bottle I have received
 
Nate
Nate,
Freaking awesome! At one point in my life I was on a search for the Peatiest scotch I could find. Once I found it, I realized it was far too strong and realized I did not enjoy that level of peat. Son of a Peat has the perfect amount of peat! Very smooth. A definite repeat buy!
 
Brandon
Brandon,
Exactly as described - smoky and smooth with a delightful heat from the high ABV.
 
Brian
Brian,
Love at first taste! I’ve fallen back in love with smoke!
 
Hardwin
Hardwin,
Remarkably smooth and the high ABV does not harm the finish. Definite chocolate, minimal burn considering the ABV. This is not Laphroig, the peat is there but subdued. Hard to believe that Flaviar came up with this as a blend, well done!
 
Jeremy
Jeremy,
Absolutely delicious. Goes down smooth.
 
Kenneth
Kenneth,
Nose: Peat, hay, wet wood, smoke Palate: More peat and smoke, some sweet liquorice, tar Finish: Warm lasting, slight burn, some chocolate and sherry
 
Garrett
Garrett,
For how much peat this scotch delivers, it is incredibly smooth! The chocolate finish really really rounds this spirit out so so nicely, and the smoke just stays with you, like you were sitting around a warm hearth. This is an instant favorite.
 
Jason
Jason,
Great smoke with a hint of iodine and balanced by a long chocolatey finish.
 
Joshua
Joshua,
Fantastic! Wonder peat bomb wrapped in delicious leather!
 
Steven
Steven,
Super peaty, smooth and oh so drinkable!
 
Bob
Bob,
Wow! If you like peaty, smoky, Islay Scotches (as I do) you will really enjoy this! Very reminiscent of a Caol Ila (one of my favorites) but, as a blend, it has a character all its own. A really, really, nice Scotch. Well done, Flaviar!
 
Paul
Paul,
Fantastic and appropriately named. The peat hits you but doesn’t overwhelm you. Absolutely delicious.
