This, the first in a three-part Vintage Series, is Big Peat 25 Years Old Islay “Vatted” Malt, entitled The Gold Edition. It is comprised of Islay’s most sought after Single Malts. There will be three consecutive limited edition releases commencing with the 25 years old. The series will bring to life the journey of the spirit with each year that passes.

Shows a more gentle, and mature, side of BP with a mellow Islay style early on the nose but shaping up (when shaken) to boat varnish with a rock pool and beach barbecue back drop. The palate opens as sweetly peated as his young vatting – distinct similarities here – warming later to creosote, pepper and chimney smoke – yet more affable and genial. The finish displays that same warm depth of sweetness before the damp bonfire ash, coal dust and charred meat appear – and continue to appear. The power of its peat and now liquorice is amplified with an espresso.
