Big Peat 2017 Christmas Edition Blended Malt Scotch Whisky – Douglas Laing (700ml)
Volume: 700ml ABV: 56% Age: No Age Statement Country: Scotland
This annual exclusive release is bottled at natural cask strength, this year at 54.1%, and is said to be “a cask strength, smoky blast that delivers the ultimate taste of Islay Whisky”.
The much-anticipated packaging is designed to appeal to the Christmas gift-buying market, and shows Big Peat bracing a blizzard battering his island home of Islay. His trademark beard has turned to icicles and he has swapped his familiar polo neck for a festive red variation. Red foil and spot varnish details bring to life an eye-catching gift tube and label design. As always, the all-Islay “Vatted” Malt Whisky inside is offered without colouring or chill-filtration, in line with the family firm’s philosophy to bottle Scotch Whisky “as natural as it gets”.
Douglas Laing’s Managing Director and proud creator of Big Peat, Fred Laing says:
Big Peat is in the midst of his busiest year ever with numerous special bottlings, including his commemorative release for Feis Ile 2017, and multiple exclusive bottlings for some of his key markets across the globe. His demanding schedule continues with this latest release, which contains a unique recipe encompassing 7 of his favourite Single Malts from Islay, honouring the 7th Big Peat Christmas edition. The resulting liquid captures that signature smoky style with a marvellously maritime quality, just perfect for sipping by the fire, feet up on a cold winter’s night. Big Peat’s not ready to put his feet up just yet though, with one final big announcement to follow before the year is out…
Official Tasting Notes
Big Peat Christmas 2017 packs an appropriately big peated punch, showing all sorts of maritime qualities like ferry engine rooms, tarry ropes, rock pools, harbour walls, beached seaweed and creosoted beach huts, with a late suggestion of chewed leather.
