Whisky Reviews for Big Peat 1992 - The Platinum Edition

10 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 90.20 points

  1. thijs100 scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    Supremely enjoyable, and superbly balanced, mature Islay whisky.
    • Nose
      Very coastal and barbeque-esque. Smouldering embers, hemp ropes, seaweed and salty cured meats. There's also hints of raisins and figs, backed up by whiffs of linoleum and porridge.
    • Taste
      Much more peaty than the nose suggests, although it has much more to offer, luckily. A tad earthy, with hints of burnt toast and licorice, as well as resin and nutmeg. There's a whisper of candlewax and milk chocolate as well.
    • Finish
      Lingering spices, with a hint of marmalade. Long.

  2. Archer scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    The great nose he can not confirm on the tongue and the finish unfortunately. On the palate, he balks for quite a long time, until he reveals all his flavors. Nothing for the impatient, you might think. But a longer finish could have been desired with a 26yo, so that he could not exhaust his obvious potential (see nose).
    • Nose
      90 90
      Wow, what a nose: Mild smoke, salt, curry, fruity-spicy barbecue sauce (Currywurst? No, not quite, that's missing the "meaty"). Dried fish, kelp, boiled sea salt. The sweetness of canned pears goes through. Dried apricots, smoked lime slices. The initially mild smoke increases with time. Milk chocolate with red pepper. A few mild herbs.
    • Taste
      87 87
      On the tongue with pepper, licorice, peat smoke and brown sugar. Then: nothing else for a while longer. The tongue feels peppery, licorice snails bring sweet spice with them - but Arsenal Explosion looks different.
      Later espresso beans, toffee, elderly wood, leather and tobacco. But the boy really took his time with it.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Medium long, slightly dry, smoky, spicy.

  3. malt_fan_06 scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    This is a well-composed Islay-Blended Malt, which clearly shows the age-relatedness of his age - but still has some fire, especially on the palate. No high flyer, no miracle of complexity, but what he has is good.
    Classic Aromatik, should contain some old Caol Ila.

    If you give it a few drops of water, it will open up a bit, it will be a bit rounder and even more fruity overall.
    • Nose
      90 90
      Maritime, mineral, peaty and a fine fresh fruitiness (peach, mirabelle, lemon). Well integrated subtle cigar smoke.
      Polished and elegant, anything but a brute Islay.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Starts slightly sweet and then becomes firmer, more powerful, masculine and dry. Has fire. Peaty, maritime, peppery, tar.
    • Finish
      88 88
      Peach, tar, maritime notes, balanced, dry. Dry smoke. Medium.

  4. mikespike scored this whisky 86 points Expert Junior

    OK, let's get started on this older (and priced much more demanding, issue about 150 mosquitoes) Malt.
    Islay Style, in the sense of Big Peat - all OK, not bad, Bourbon barrel ripening, at least for the most part.
    For me magic is missing, and the question is not necessary, why not grab a bottle for 50 euros from this genre.
    I'm sorry, for me the dramtic added value of this long storage is not recognizable. Not to compare with single malts from Caol Ila, or Ardbeg that allowed to mature so long.
    Conclusion for me: pretty blended malt, but brutally unfavorable price-performance ratio.

    • Nose
      Very pleasant smoke, caramel, vanilla, bright fruits,
      Maritime
    • Taste
      Vanilla, super integrated smoke, caramel, earthy, maritime
    • Finish
      Long

      Unbelievably complex - simply top

  7. MrYens scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

  8. LordBellamy scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Water: No, he does not need it

    Conclusion: spicy-fruity curry sauce on the beach, so I would describe it with a sentence. Great nose, also in taste a lot happens, but the finish is way too short. Overall, there is still a lot missing in such an old Islay Malt, but it remains a very great and pleasant drinking whiskey
    • Nose
      90 90
      mild but strong smoke, very maritime, salty, tar, but also a lot of BBQ sauce and some curry powder, behind the smoke shows the fruity side with canned fruits like mirabelle, lemon and pear, with some time comes a light, floral Component with this (Bowmore?), A few bananas, vanillie and coconut also keeps coming through
    • Taste
      87 87
      starts mild with beautiful honey sweetness, then a peat smoke rinses wave over the tongue, some spices and fruits follow, barely oak note
    • Finish
      86 86
      medium, with fiery peat fire, a few beach pebbles and light fruit flavors
