Review: Big Peat Islay Blended Islay Malt Scotch Whisky


Big Peat whiskyIt’s called “Big Peat.” And the picture on the label is a drawing of a grimacing guy who looks like he’s been punched in the face.

So you know what you’re getting into.

A vatting of Islay whiskys from Ardbeg, Caol Ila, Port Ellen, and Bowmore (plus other unspecified whiskies), this is an (obviously) extremely heavily peated whisky that still manages to find flavor amidst the embers. Curious aromas of the evergreen forest and mushroom lead to flavors of plum, tobacco, seaweed, and cedar box. Above it all, the character of freshly-struck matches.

Weird, yet compelling in the strangest of ways.

92 proof.
