Expert Reviews86 points, Serge Valentin on Whiskyfun.com, 12 December 2011
- Appearance : gold.
- Nose : Islay in spirit. Precise notes of liquorice sticks, ash and billowing chimney smoke. Medicinal notes creep alongside a touch of clove. Earthy peat and roasted barley.
- Palate : liquid peat! Alternates between tar, oil, camphor, eucalyptus and menthol.
- Overall : peaty and vegetal. A fun, bold expression of Islay.
- The brand
Using the most famous single malts of the Isle of Islay, including Bowmore, Caol Ila, Ardbeg and Port Ellen, the Douglas Laing company has created an original blended malt (a blend of various single malts). Its label features a picture of Pete the Ileach being hit by a strong gust of wind. Big Pete is both a tribute to the residents of the island and a play on the word “peat”. A celebration of the Isle of Islay - of its inhabitants, its weather and its whisky - Big Peat is un-chillfiltered and comes in three sizes - small, medium and large - enough to satisfy the needs of all its fans, even the most lionhearted!
