Big Peat 25 Year Old - The Gold Edition Review

Big Peat 25 Year Old - The Gold Edition Big Peat, as anyone who knows me, is a huge favourite in my whisky collection and when a 25 year old version is available well thats just even more exciting.

The first of 3 new age statement versions is this 25 year old, it's a supercharged Big Peat, more cream, more smoke, more sweetness, more length to the finish, more complexity and more sophistication, delicious stuff.

If this is a sign of things to come in 2018 from Douglas Laing then the future is exceptionally bright.

Available to buy from Master of Malt

Thanks to Douglas Laing for the official sample.

Tasting Notes & Details


Smoky tropical fruit salad, five alive & um bungo fruit juices, a touch of chalky Edinburgh rock and creamed smoked haddock chowder, hints of metallic notes, struck flint and wet pebbles, delicious and enticing.


Spice, and a lot of it, cinnamon wood spices and sea salt, the tropical fruits are there again but that salty spice is there in spades


Still going 5 minutes later, huge spice and salt amazing stuff
