Whisky Row Smoke & Peat

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Warm slabs of tangy peat. Hints of chocolate, coffee and cedar with spices, walnuts and almond. A touch of cinnamon with oily smoke.

Palate: Simple, easy going, but delicious. Notes of heavy smoke, cut grass, peanut, spices and peat.

Finish: Quite abrupt with cut grass, coastal notes and smoke.

Big Peat Reviews


Great aroma to fire up the palate. I was at one end of a table for 12 and the far end people picked up the aroma as soon as I sat down. And then tasted the peat. Yummie.
Why would you add a mixer to a malt??

Good on its own

Very nice on its own - goes down easily and has plenty of peat. But not a huge fan of the underlying sweetness. If you add a mixer that sweetness becomes overwhelming. Still, would recommend for sipping!

Quite simply divine. I was gifted this for my birthday and am now back buying a bottle. Such was the quality.

Very impressive blend for smoke and peat lovers

I was a bit put off by the "trendy" branding but decided to give it a go as the description of the balanced, smokey, peaty blend contained malts that I love in their own right.
I am very taken by the complexity and smoothness of the result and the accurate description. So, against my usual old-fashioned clinging to single malts approach, Big Peat proves it is time to add blends from Douglas Laing. A definite five stars with a splash of water.

12 out of 10. Tastes like nothing you've ever tried before!

Was given a bottle of this and I WANT MORE!!

Imagine stirring your dram with a charred Oak stick, then throw in some leaves, vanilla and banana. Oily, tarry and utterly AWESOME.

I usually ONLY drink Irish Whiskey, but I'm a convert.

I had a battle of a bit salty wisky. The package was kind of blue. Don't remember its name but it was the best I ever had. Love to get another battle.

Highly recommended

Superb and fun. This is very 2021 and all about Single Malts married together. Love it. Bought it after a virtula tasting. Like going to Islay but not leaving my couch! Well done. 10/10

Wonderful blend

The usual Islay suspects dominate the palate - smoke & the sea. Add a trickle of water, & this blend can compete with any single-malt. Thoroughly enjoy this well-made whisky!

I think this is getting too good. My Islay dram of choice. Highly recommended.
