Nose: felt wine finish, citrus, ember smoke, raisins, tobacco, flowers
Taste: smoky, smoked, salty, ash
Finish: good and nice. Warm and comfortable.
- Nice whiskey. Moderate, unobtrusive in flavor, the taste explodes with a smoky sweetness and gradually subsides in the aftertaste.
Soft, sweet peat, lime, wine and sherry motives, smoked smoke, dry grass, balm on the roots, burnt sugar, burnt jam, baking with vanilla and fruit, light yodist, apricot drying, raisins, fried hair. Smoke is soft, background. Not alcoholic.
Smoke, ash, dried fruits, apricot drying, juicy. Delicious and successfully selected degree.
Smoke, apricot drying, soot, sweet oily, dried melon, banana. Medium duration. Nice and consistent.
- declination 2017!
lemon, vanilla, wood and chimney smoke
a little mineral, a little iodine!
return other fruits more orange
cooked fruit, malted sweetness too
peat appears well after!
the woody appears with floral notes next
it's singular because the scents are not really marked, they turn in the mouth
on caramel, wood, peat rather dry, rather pronounced, but monolithic
- great recognizable big pit in sherry
- This was a sample courtesy of Peatbogger. Thoroughly enjoyed it, a real nice combination.
A very nice subtle nose. Reminds me of a horses stable. There has been a few that do that. Also detergent soap is also there. This all doesn't sound very good but somehow it works. Also red sulphur matches and vinyl records.
This isn't easy to achieve especially with a strong peated whisky but this works well. Well balanced I think with red cherry, sarsaparilla. This has a really good mouth feel to it. It's a little sharp but that's only as a reminder of the 48% alc. A little slap and pay attention.
The thing is with the finish, it's the fruity notes that linger and not the smoky ones and they linger for a while with quite an array.
- The sherry finish and the slightly higher ABV is nice. More intense, but not a heavy one.
Rather smoky than peaty. Sherry, dark fruits, salt, sour cabbage. Camphor and grass.
Intensive. Dark fruits, caramel and sherry. Peat, smoke and ash. Tobacco and cocoa.
Medium length, dry, spicy, ashy.
- First Big Peat with a sherry cask marrying finish.
Different but absolutely pleasing.
- The original Big Peat walked off a trawler at the yeard, crawled through a bog and cursed you from the glass, this is Big Peat straight from the shower, with trimmed beard, dressed up, inviting you to a party. Still you sense he will reak havoc if you go with him.
Wow, this must be Peat's brother... quite different than the other BP I have tried.
The peat is definitly present, but not as prominent as expected, and is more on the clean smokey side.
Sherry finish is clearly noticable, as this has notes of dark red fruit and more spice.
At a certain angle I get a very intence pure rasberry juice.
Also a slight note of polished hardwood.
Potent and bold arrival.
Hot spice with light peat smoke.
Dark red fruits going into sweet creamy caramel.
Tobacco with a drop of sewing machine oil before going into the end.
Long and warming.
A little drying with cocoa and spices lingering.
