    Well, we all kind of expected this one to be the crown on the afternoon. Big Peat is loved by most and therefore we thought this one would be the best out of the 5. However, after the spectacular Rock Oyster, it kind of fell short in terms of power and smokiness.

    The nose was a little faint, especially compared to the RO. Some soft smoke, a light fruity sweetness and some burnt wood but overal a little redacted.

    The taste was more convincing. Bbq meat, smokiness, some orange notes and a little oaky spiciness.

    The finish had more smoke, orange and spiciness, lingering a very long time.

    After the initial let-down, the taste and finish kind of made up for it. However, it just wasn't the bold, rebellious and cheeky Big Peat I know and love, it was a mature "Medium" Peat, who had aged well but somehow became a little boring.

    Maybe it would have been better to taste this before the Rock Oyster, because the latter was way more convincing overal. Still, there was a lot to enjoy with this Islay blend.
