You can’t omit peat and its significance in Scotch whisky. It’s a flavour produced by Scotland’s distinctive geology and history. Peat, as a source of fuel, is the accumulation of decayed organic matter for thousands of years. In early times Scots would mix peat with other fuels to dry malted barley and brought this unique peaty flavour to Scotch whisky.
Nowadays people don’t rely on peat as a primary fuel any more, plus it’s not a popular flavour, many distilleries have turned to produce non-peaty whisky. Today, peaty whisky is a niche product, while non-peaty whisky especially Speyside is now the mainstream of Scotch whisky.
