92pointsBig Peat

The name says it all: this Scotch is blended from “a shovelful” of Islay single malts, including Ardbeg, Caol Ila, Bowmore and Port Ellen—producers of some of the peatiest Scotches around. The bold iodine aroma is like breathing salt air at the seashore, and is just subtly smoky. On the palate, expect fleeting vanilla sweetness followed by a huge rush of peat smoke, which pulls back to finish with campfire s'mores and bitter chocolate notes. Kara Newman
