Jon, Mark and Robbo’s The Smokey Peaty One
Increasingly hard to find discontinued blended malt whisky.
In 2002 former Macallan master distiller David ‘Robbo’ Robertson joined forces with brothers Jon and Mark Geary to form The Easy Drinking Whisky Company.
Robertson formulated the blended malts using a number of Edrington malts.
Originally three choices were available in the range. The Smokey Peaty One, The Rich Spicy One and The Smooth Sweeter One.
The Smokey Peaty One comprised Caol Ila, Bunnahabhain, Highland Park, Ledaig, Bowmore and Laphroaig.
The range won a number of awards, but in 2003 David Robertson left the company to take up a role with Whyte & Mackay, and Mark Geary, then head of planning and research at Edrington Group.
The company closed in 2010.
