Big Peat 2016 Christmas Edition Blended Malt Scotch Whisky – Douglas Laing (700ml)
Volume: 700ml ABV: 54.6% Age: No Age Statement Country: Scotland
This new release marks the 6th Big Peat Christmas Edition, though this particular bottling is unlike any bottling ever released by the firm before. Traditionally a marriage of primarily Ardbeg, Bowmore, Caol Ila and Port Ellen, this one-off Big Peat Limited Edition vatting includes all active distilleries on Islay, plus the long-closed, elusive and exclusive Port Ellen. Bottled at a natural cask strength of 54.6%, the new Christmas release is proudly without colouring or chill-filtration, in line with the Douglas Laing family philosophy to bottle “as natural as it gets”. –
True to the family firm’s “Brand Innovators of the Year 2016” accolade, no attention to detail was spared in creating the packaging for this special release. A bespoke, vibrant illustration shows Big Peat by the fireside of his cosy Islay home, with 9 Christmas stockings hanging from his fireplace, representing the 9 Single Malt Scotch Whiskies included in this special, one-off Big Peat Christmas recipe. Fans of Big Peat may also recognise his “Remarkable Regional Malts” pals – with bottles of The Epicurean, Timorous Beastie, Scallywag and Rock Oyster peeking out from his Santa sack of goodies.
Official Tasting Notes
Big Peat Christmas 2016 carries a big, chimney soot, oceanic, sea-weedy and seriously phenolic selection of Malts distilled only on Islay. “He” is bottled at natural cask strength for Christmas, and as ever, he’s proudly not chill-filtered, resulting in a full-bodied Malt that delivers a fulsome mouth-feel.
