A blended malt whisky of a rare quality from Douglas Laing’s regional malt series.
The oldest Big Peat ever released, this dram has been finished in a combination of sherry and Cognac casks, following its lengthy maturation. The bottling contains spirits from different distilleries around Islay, with each of the whiskies included distilled in 1985.
This Big Peat offers up incredible depth and character after such a long maturation period. Drinkers can expect notes of rich, smoked plums, raisins, prunes, juicy tropical fruits, subtle peat smoke with some floral undertones, red apples, meaty malt, buttered nuts, citrus peel, dark burnt oak, bacon, molasses and slight vanilla.
A remarkable whisky, amongst the finest blended malts from Islay. The dram has been presented at 47.2% ABV and without chill filtration or colouration, ensuring the drinker enjoys the full benefit of this whisky’s long sleep in the barrel.
Just 1,500 bottles were produced worldwide.
