Best wine shop in calais to find a great selection of Peated Whiskies. A peated whiskey is often confused with a smoked whiskey as these two characteristics are close together because of their origin. Peat, which is a fuel derived from the decomposition of vegetable matter (usually heather on Islay), is consumed more than it burns. While burning it releases a lot of smoke. Scotch whiskey whiskeys were naturally dried on peat fires (peat being the only source of heat available). This drying process charges smoked taste barley grains at the end of malting before brewing. The peaty taste also comes from the water of the Lochs used, this water flows on river beds loaded with peat. In English Peat is translated by PEAT. The measurement of peat intensity in a whiskey is measured in PPM (Part Per Million Phenols). In general, an Islay peated whiskey is 80 ppm, but in response to a growing demand for peat, a distillery such as Bruichladdich offers Octomore, a hyper peat single malt hovering around 250 to 300 ppm. The peat will give the single malt empyreumatic aromas like the smell of chimney, ash, tar, but also spices such as licorice, clove and medicinal as camphor and eucalyptus.
