PEAT Fullproof – Elements of Islay

PEAT FULL PROOF 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.

Distillery: Islay
Country: Scotland
No of Bottled: Small
Alcohol: 59.3%


Tasting note:

Nose: fresh, sprightly barley entwined with peat smoke and bonfire embers. Bracing aromas of salty seaweed and seashells. Plenty of clean fruit – lemon, lime and grapefruit – while hiding underneath are notes of rich earth and liquorice.
Palate: warm and leathery with thick-cut bacon, seashore campfires and roasted fruit: sweet apple and lime with a sprinkle of caster sugar. Layers of smoke and dark chocolate limes envelope the palate and are intertwined with softer lemon oil and barbecue sauce, with hints of roasted spices and barrel char, complementing the peat and smoke.
Finish: Sea spray and baked apple fade leaving heavier smoke, truffle salt and sweet spice.
