Speciality Drinks Introduce Elements of Islay Peat
Speciality Drinks are pleased to introduce our new and ongoing addition to the range – Elements of Islay Peat
PEAT is the perfect expression of smoky whisky, with all the full-on coastal character you would expect
from an island whisky, as well as balanced sweetness.
On its own or in a cocktail, it is the go-to peaty whisky for all, balancing serious smoky flavour with a sense of fun.
We have used whisky from a handful of distilleries across the island to create an Islay blended malt, taking the distinct character of each and bringing them together, focusing on Islay’s most famous flavour – peat.
Offical Tasting Notes:
Nose: Fresh and alive with peat smoke and bonfire embers, followed by bracing aromas of salty seaweed and seashells. There is plenty of fruit – lemon, lime and grapefruit – and notes of rich earth and liquorice hiding underneath.
Palate: Thick-cut bacon, seashore campfires and roasted fruit: sweet apple with a sprinkle of caster sugar. Layers of charcoal and dark chocolate envelope the palate and are intertwined with hickory smoke and hints of lapsang souchong tea.
Finish: Sea spray and baked apple fade leaving heavy smoke, truffle salt and sweet spice.
Available from all good whisky specialists including The Whisky Exchange with an RRP of £34.95
