The higher strength version of Duncan Taylor’s Big Smoke. This is essentially a younger, more intense version of the very popular Auld Reekie. Lots of complexity and smoky flavour going on….
Islay is more than just an Island!
It’s a style, a flavour, an ideal, a destination steeped in history and folklore and a nirvana for fans of the smokier style of Scotch whisky.
The Big Smoke was created to blend malt whiskies from some of the islands most iconic distilleries, and then bottled at a relatively young age in its most rugged form. This whisky is reminiscent of traditional Islay malts, full of peat smoke and coastal sweetness, powerful yet caressing, everything you would expect from a blend that includes Caol Ila, Bruichladdich and Ardbeg.
The Big Smoke 60 (60% abv) at full strength does everything it says on the tin, and will live up to the expectations of even the most hardcore of Islay fanatics – to be handled with care!
