The Big Smoke is a blended Islay malt whisky. Bottled relatively young, its characteristics are reminiscent of traditional Islay malt - full of peat smoke coastal sweetness. Powerful yet caressing, the Big Smoke is bottled at 46% ABV, and contains the likes of some of the most iconic Islay malt distilleries.
The Big Smoke delivers a bold and powerful sensory experience to the seasoned Islay fanatics, with a multi-dimensional sweetness that allows it to be enjoyed by connoisseurs of smoother Speyside and Campbeltown malts.
