Behold, it's the first permanent release in Douglas Laing's Big Peat series with an age statement! This 12 year old blended malt, made with whiskies from the Isle of Islay, packs a familiar peaty flavour profile, with some extra depth and complexity joining the party. Oh, and Big Peat still has his lovely yellow jumper. That's wonderful.
Nose: Bonfires on beaches, ready salted crisps, brown sugar and a hint of liquorice.
Palate: Sea breeze, earthy peat, peanut brittle, oak, flamed orange peel and toasted sesame seeds.
Finish: Heavy peat smoke sticks around for minutes on the finish.
