Big Peat 12 review

Today we will be having a look at the new 12 year old Big Peat, part of Douglas Laing's Remarkable Regional Malts range.

Containing only single malt whiskies matured on Islay. Douglas Laing describe the new 12 year old addition as a unique marriage of Single Cask Single Malts which has been bottled at what has now become the standard for this range - without colouring or chill-filtration, and at a strength of 46% ABV.

The nose starts as a classic Islay iodine soaked campfire. Ashy smoke, charcoal, damp oak and seaweed come through. A gentle vanilla/caramel sweetness just touches the background of the onslaught before growing into a slight lemon peel.

The palate continues that growing citrus theme from the nose but is quickly drowned out by crashing waves of peat smoke and wet moss. Fresh oak spice, black pepper and rosemary mingle together. Vanilla still there but pushed far into the background. 

The finish is extra long and coats your mouth and throat with ashy smoke and black pepper before dying on the lemon/citrus notes.

A fantastic smokey blend. Big Peat always delivers.
