Big Peat 25 The Gold Edition

Thanks to /u/xile_ for the sample. It’s probably not a surprise at all that people enjoy the Big Peat series. Peatheads are rampant in the whisky scene, as much as taters at times. So where do you go from a standard blend of Islay whiskies? Well, each Xmas we get a cask strength, with candy canes on […]
