Non-peaty Scotch is a must-have for some of you. With peat, you either love it or leave it. We get it. We can get down with some peat, for sure. But if you’re looking to avoid that signature slap in the mouth, then we’ve got some perfect bottles for you.
Today, we’ll hear from three of our Prestige Decanters brand ambassadors. They’ll give us a few of their non-peaty Scotch favorites. So, take notes! Keep your eyes peeled for these sippers that are a little easier on your mouth, throat, etc. You know, all of your insides, basically.
The 7 Top Non-Peaty Scotch Picks
We think these are going to be great for holiday get-togethers and New Year’s parties. Actually, any time of the year will be just fine. Shop, drink and enjoy, friends!
First 2 Picks from @whiskyjourney:
Longmorn 16 (Non-Peaty Scotch) | $109.99
“I have two unpeated favorites. One is Longmorn 16. A lovely whisky with a lot of tasty fresh fruit, herbs, oak, vanilla, and honey. A very complex whisky!” – @whiskyjourney
GlenAllachie – Single Cask Series | $104.99
“My second favorite is a single cask from GlenAllachie. 24-year-old, 54.2 percent. A very complex whisky with a rather special scent of beeswax and honey, vanilla, and raisins. Amazing spicy taste with balance in sweetness–jam, butterscotch, and gingerbread!” – @whiskyjourney
