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.
NOSE: Citrus, smoke and rubber. Ash. Salt and pepper. Soil. Peat. A touch of leather. Briny. Some chocolate. A touch of natural caramel. Iodine. Faint Lapsang Souchong tea. Great balance.
PALATE: Citric and smoky. Like cask strength Caol Ila, with a little more roundness.
FINISH: A peppery punch. Salt licorice. Touch of lime zest.
