For Peat's SakeThe Scotch Malt Whisky Society
Compare and contrast the nuances of peat from two different regions with this smokin’ set! Cask 66.150 Smoke, soot and tarry ropes represents the cooler, more campfire-oriented expression of Highland peat. This peat is based in old Caledonian forest materials offering a textbook expression of the peated mainland style. Cask 53.302 Holy sweet smoke! hails from Islay and uses peat based in seaweed and sand, among other coastal vegetation. The result is an intensely satisfying foray into classic Islay peat.
