ABV: 46% | Location: Glasgow
Big Peat is a blended malt which contains only Single Malt Scotch Whiskies from the island of Islay. Islay's distilleries are known for their peaty, smoky character, all offering variations on the theme of ash, beach bonfires, coal and tar. Big Peat represents all that is Islay in a bottle.
Caol Ila spirit brings sweetness, Bowmore balances it perfectly, Ardbeg provides a medicinal, earthy quality and Port Ellen, a degree of elegance.
Proudly presented without colouring or chill-filtration which allows the natural oily big character of the spirit to reign supreme, Big Peat picked up the top prize in its category at the World Whisky Awards 2010.
