The whisky

Son of a Peat is a members exclusive private label inspired by the Flaviar community. We set out to create a high quality Peated Blended Malt Scotch? our members would love—and they do. Each batch is unique and in short supply. A collector’s wet dram sourced from the finest distilleries of Scotland whose names, well... shall remain shrouded in mystery.

This is a complex Whisky that shoots above the crowd but also blends in perfectly. It is a piece of Son’s dark, brooding soul. A piece of his passion, brilliance and insanity. Every time the cork parts and the smell hits, he is with you in Spirit. Once the last drop of each batch is gone, it’s gone forever.

An essential addition to any modern Whisky collection.

In this world there are two kinds of people... those with loaded guns and those who dig Peat. You dig!

Son of a Peat

The story

Born the Son of a Peat digger. His loved ones? Dead. Gone forever. What happened in the wake of the events remains murky and shrouded in mystery, but now, fueled by peat, he fights back.

His creations, much like himself, are Dark. Heavy. Intense. Yet, they're laced with gentle memories of his childhood—the memories that keep the man alive. The Peat loves him and he loves the Peat, his only family left.

Son of a Peat is a vigilante and a product of our time. Peat fuels him, but it's the world's ignorance that fires his stills. He fights for the future of Whisky, but more importantly, shows us how to fight for our own—head on, chin held high. Even when staring down a smoking barrel.

“People incapable of guilt usually do have a good time.”

Batch 02

BATCH 02 is a worthy successor to the original Son of a Peat. Slightly improved original DNA expands and evolves the taste to new heights. The essence of Islay, Islands, Highland, and the Speyside trickled down the cooling pipes to be reborn as a complex peated maelstrom. Another commanding Whisky that sparks the love for peat in the kilns of our hearts.

Treated by hand and bottled at the peak of its power. We made damn sure the Whisky got the care it deserves. 47.2% ABV strong, no added color and non-chill filtered.

No smoke and mirrors, only a smoking barrel and hard truth, invoked by the Son of a Peat’s dark & intense, yet remarkably warm and welcoming flavor. A real shot caller.

Flavor profile?
The list of suspects? Quite clear. Peat and smoke with notions of seaweed that take you back to the Scottish shores. Quickly now the sweetness of sherry and honeysuckle step forward and clear the smoke, but just for a bit, till the journey continues towards more earthy, oaky and woody flavor nuances. The finish is buttery and long-lasting.

Previous editions

BATCH 01
Son of a Peat BATCH 01 presents the usual suspects—peat, smoke, and salt. But the more you taste, the more biscuity and sweet it becomes. Then, there's apricot, sherry, citrus and green apple notes that take things to 11. The finish is oily, succulent and bittersweet.

Absolutely my favorite scotch. I was nervous about getting this but I was pleasantly surprised and wish I would’ve gotten more.

— Cody, Flaviar Member

Not too much of anything, very well balanced, the smokiness is rich. So very much addictive. Wish I had bought two bottles.

— Axel, Flaviar Member

This is peat. Welcome. I'm so glad to be able to own and share this amazing bottle. The only problem is I can't drink it more often…

“I thought I had tasted the pinnacle of Whisky. Then I met peat.”

What the hell is a Blended Malt Whisky?

A Blended Malt, formerly known as a Vatted Malt, or Pure Malt, is a blend of different Single Malt Whiskies from different distilleries—no Grain Whisky is used. Just a big old Single Malt party up in there.

What’s the difference between Blended Malt, Single Malt and Blended Scotch?

There's a slight difference, but for Whisky lovers, they're worlds apart.
  • A Blended Malt is a blend of different Single Malt Whiskies from different distilleries.
  • A Single Malt is a blend of different Single Malt Whiskies from one distillery.
  • A Blended Scotch is a mix of malt and grain Whiskies, sourced from different distilleries.
