Whisky Tasting - "So You Think You Know Peat"*

  • Wisconsin Club 900 W Wisconsin Ave Milwaukee, WI, 53233 United States (map)

When most people hear the word peat in relation to Scotch whisky, they usually think of dirt, or at best a medicinal smell. There is so much more to it than that. Various areas of Scotland have different types of vegetation, and that makes different types of peat, which can impart flavors not normally associated with peat. We would like to tell you about some flavors that are not commonly recognized as peat, and compare them to the usual suspects. We’ve also thrown in a couple of distilleries that you may not be so familiar with and tell you why they are important.

For your consideration:

  • HIGHLAND PARK – 15 year - 43% - Islands
  • LONGROW – 10 year - 50% - Campbeltown
  • BUNNAHABHAIN – MacPhail's Heavily Peated 8 year - 43% - Islay
  • TALISKER – 10 year - 45.8% - Islands
  • KILCHOMAN – Machir Bay - 46% - Islay
  • LAPHROAIG – Cask Strength - 57% - Islay
