Funny name, funny bottle but a serious and credible whisky on the inside. Big Peat is a small-batch, multi-award winning premium 100% Islay Malt Scotch Whisky bursting with character and true flavour. Big Peat contains Ardberg, Bowmore and Port Ellen (the now closed distillery) among others. Big Peat contains no colouring and is non chill-filtered.

On the nose Big Peat is fresh, salty and clean opening up to a sweet malted barley, a bit damp and earthy. Tastes you’ll get are a bit of ash, sweet tar, seaside beach and smoking chimneys of course. The finish… long and lingering; (more) salty, tangy liquorice, (more) smoke and bonfire ashes. Leading malt aficionados, particularly Jim Murray, give Big Peat the big thumbs up.

Finally, for the real experts, it’s all down to the PPM (parts per million) phenol in the distilled spirit. In short, the higher the PPM levels, the peatier the whisky will be to taste. Our meaty Big Peat is 40 PPM. To put it in malty perspective, Bowmore is 25 PPM while Laphroaig is 43 PPM. So the name Big Peat is pretty spot on.

Big Peat has a rather dedicated group of followers with some so in love with the juice and the legend that is Big Peat that they’ve had his malty face tattooed on their arms. Fanatical.

Comes in its premium gift tube with embossed label.
