Douglas Laing Big Peat
Tad Dorda, the owner of Chopin Vodka, has been making this blend for years for his own personal enjoyment. When he introduced us to it on a cold night in Poland, we knew we had to share it with the world.
Small Batch bottlings, unchill filtered malts which contant a shovelful of Ardbeg, Bowmore, Caol Ila and PORT ELLEN, including a few secret Douglas Laings peated distillates.
