Big Peat Christmas 2014 Bottling Note

The jolly, bearded chap is back for another Christmas! No, not Santa Claus, it's Big Peat, and he's got a whole new batch of Big Peat at Christmas 2014 in his sleigh. A classic Douglas Laing blended malt, jam packed with Islay whiskies from the likes of Caol Ila, Bowmore, Ardbeg and even the closed Port Ellen distillery. As a Christmas treat, it's been bottled at natural cask strength.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Thick, crumbly oatcakes with a bit of brie. Ice cream and jelly. Pencils. Big notes of earth, with medicinal notes coming through after a minute or two. Ham - plenty of ham.

Palate: Bonfire embers, light struck matches and sea breeze. The oatcakes are back, but this time they've been loaded up with fruit chutney and served alongside some blackberries. A drop of water opens up salty notes.

Finish: It just goes and goes, this one. Smoke and earth all the way to the end.

Overall: Wouldn't mind finding this one wrapped up under the Christmas tree, that's for sure.

Big Peat at Christmas 2014 Reviews

Good...

This whiskey is good but its not really well balanced. I prefer buying a bottle of Ardbeg/Laphroaig/Longrow much more balanced and rounded. Everyone who has tasted it pulled their face like Big Peat on the bottle, and they are all seasoned whisky drinkers and big lovers of peat. very peaty and salty sure... but not a great whisky in my opinion.

Better than the 46!

I found the 46% version of Big Peat had a bit too much icing sugar on the nose. At 55% however the sweetness is better balanced by the peat. The Xmas version is definitely worth the extra cost.

By all means add a drop of water, but not too much!
