Big Peat Islay Blended Malt Scotch Whisky

Big Peat Islay Blended Matlt Whisky

Spring officially arrived last night. The mercury hit the high 50s (Farenheit), and sun flooded today.

The night air, however, still carries a chill. And with a chest cold coming on, well, why not turn to Big Peat.

It is 92 proof and carries Big malts, most obviously Ardbeg. This is one to sip neat and slowly so as to fully appreciate the heft and multitude of flavors (iodine, peak, sea, etc.) Strictly speaking, this is a vatted whisky, meaning it is made from a combination of whiskies with no neutral grain spirit thrown in. A rare bird, indeed. (Rating: Excellent)
