.peat’s beast

What can I say about this one: a single malt, from an undisclosed distillery on Islay. Most often this means we are either working with a young Laphroaig or a Caol Ila, where – at this moment, the first is more difficult to obtain for blenders and indie bottlers, so my money is on the latter…

single malt

Nose: young and smokey, with the scent of fresh meat and something slightly metallic, not even that uncommon…
