Established in 1948, Douglas Laing & Co is an independent bottler based in Glasgow. Big Peat is part of its Remarkable Regional Malts, a range of blended malts aimed at showcasing the remarkable qualities of each Scotch region's malt whiskies. Big Peat focuses on the Islay region, and this particular expression is a limited edition released for the Feis Ile 2018 festival. Bottled at a slightly higher 48% ABV, it is a blend of Islay malts. A big oily peat nose with a touch of cinnamon spice. The palate has seaweed, oat and demerara sugar. The finish is light citrus, sea salt and malt. Great neat.
