Douglas Laing & Co, the independent family Scotch Whisky firm behind the “Remarkable Regional Malts”, celebrates a decade of their Islay Malt with a commemorative Big Peat 10 Years Old bottling.
Inspired by a vintage scrap book, the label features a collection of emblems, stamps and hand-drawn illustrations in honour of Big Peat’s Islay home. A platinum foiled story book held within a heavyweight envelope accompanies each bottle, telling the legend of Big Peat and his Whisky adventures. The special bottling is a marriage Single Malts distilled exclusively on Islay and proudly offered without colouring or chill-filtration. At a punchy 46% strength, the 10 Years Old Whisky is “packed with sooty, smoky, leathery charm”.
“Back in 2009, I dreamt up a feisty Ileach fisherman who would later become Big Peat, a brand that would grow at an average of 29% year on year, and subsequently be joined by Scallywag, Timorous Beastie, Rock Oyster, The Epicurean and The Gauldrons to deliver what we so modestly designate our “Remarkable Regional Malts: The Ultimate Distillation of Scotland’s Malt Whisky Regions”. I’m delighted to see Big Peat continue to grow and to see ‘him’ develop such a loyal band of followers around the world – this special bottling is a fitting tribute to him!”
