    A nose vanilla and bourbon very balanced, quite pastry same, sponge cake, whipped cream, but the peat is there of course, vanilla mouth, explosive final very appreciable.

    Very enjoyable Islay whisky with loads of sweet peat, barley and honey. Seems like a rather young whisky from refill casks, but this helps to preserve the typical character of smokey Islay whisky.
    Unfortunately it‘s not possible to taste the few drops of Port Ellen you get per bottle ;)

    Cask strength heavily peated Islay whisky of a high quality, this is exactly what Big Peat is supposed to be.
    • Nose
      Very sweet and certainly not overtly peated. Touches of banana and vanilla custard, as well as crème brûlée. Some cream too, as well as a touch of nutmeg.
    • Taste
      Sweet arrival again. Overripe, mushed banana and vanilla, but also a touch of pineapple. Then the peat takes over. Intense and salty, very maritime. Some chili heat as well.
    • Finish
      Lingers for a long time. Spicy. More of the above.
