Peated Blended Malt100% malted barley from more than one distillery. Dried with peat.
"Soft minerals, dried seaweed and a quite intense fried bacon note, make for a good start. Pretty savory, except for the subtle aroma of mushed banana. The peat is somewhat muted. The palate however, is much more intense. Peat, soot, charcoal, cigarette ashes. It has it all. It's Big. It's Peat-y. It's Big Peat. This is one for the peat lovers."
