Let’s now have a taste.

Big Peat – The Bannerman’s Bar Edition, Islay Blended Malt Scotch Whisky, Non-chill Filtered, 48% Alc/vol 70 cl.

Colour…Silver fox

Nose…A smoky coal tar nose, campfire toffee apples, sweet and spicy. Briny and salty aromas fill the air as we cut peat and spread it out across the moor.

Taste…A taste of a coastal bonfire, a curious mix of smoked fish, and other notes of rock pools and oyster shells, I have just opened a first aid box, and a teardrop of water releases herbal notes, a slight citrus burst.

Finish…Long, smoky, and with a sweetness, a fantastic finish.

With a slightly higher Alc/vol than the standard Big Peat it certainly shows off the delights of Islay.

Next time The Whisky Boys visit Edinburgh this bar will definitely be on our list for a must visit.
