Big Peat Christmas 2019

Big Peat has received yet another festive get-up! This is the 2019 edition Big Peat at Christmas, an annual release of the Islay blended malt from Douglas Laing. Built from malt whiskies produced at a selection of Islay distilleries, including Ard, Bowmore, Caol Ila and even the closed Port Ellen, and bottled at 53.7% ABV, this certainly is something to sip on a chilly winter evening. Perhaps after a cracking Christmas dinner, perhaps...?

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose Burnt wood and salted caramel, with a whiff of sea air.

Palate Juicy stone fruit and more caramel. Still plenty smoky, with loads of toasty peat wafts.

Finish Ash, drying baking spice and another helping of sea breeze.

Pushes most of the right buttons but young
Big, ashy, phenolic hit at cask strength, Ardbeg to the fore methinks. Good quality spirit but there is that telltale whiff of youth which brings the price into question, hence the rating.

Christmas in my glass
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas with this beauty of a Big Peat Xmas. It’s a great and really well balanced Islay whisky!
