Launched in late 2009, this tongue-in-cheek named blended (vatted) malt with its comic label contains some very serious Islay malts from Ardbeg, Bowmore, Caol Ila and even some Port Ellen - now long closed. We are told it also contains two further Islay malts but these are not disclosed. Read more

Review and Tasting

Sampled on 29/03/2011

Appearance

Light straw yellow with slight haze and visible precipitation.

Aroma

Iodine, salty seaweed with tar, creosote, chimney soot, hard liquorice and damp bonfire aromas.

Taste

Salty, iodine with cabbage vegetable notes quickly turns to sooty tar with creosote emerging towards the long sooty finish.

Aftertaste

Peat is indeed a big lad with an even bigger palate but he has a gentle side.
