Big Peat Christmas 2017 Bottling Note

Big Peat has got his Christmas jumper on once again, which can only mean one thing - it's time for another edition of Big Peat at Christmas! For 2017, Douglas Laing have blended seven different Islay single malts (including whisky from the revered Port Ellen) together and bottled it up at cask strength. A fantastic winter warmer.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Roasted peanuts, sea breeze, hints of spearmint and tarry ropes.

Palate: Campfire embers with toasted marshmallows and milk chocolate. Subtly oak at points.

Finish: Oily malt, pine nuts and a lingering earthy quality.

Big Peat at Christmas 2017 Reviews

Sharp on nose & tongue. HEAVENLY finish

Young and striking on the nose.
sharp on the tongue first 3-4 sips.
then it settles..... or your mouth gets numb enough. take your pick.
best part is finish. something to smack your tongue and lick your lips. the finish is better than some really good 10-12's.

smoky? yeah, but with a slightly unpleasant hit.
have i regretted buying 2 bottles based on this very sites reviews that i googled in store? nah.

Literally reminds me of Dec on Islay

I’d bought quite a few bottles since coming back, after visiting in December. I did a cask tasting at Caol Ila and I ended up taking away most of it, (it was a mix of young bourbon cask and up to 29 sherry cask) the cups leaked in the little boxes and my kitchen on Islay smelled exactly like this whisky. I can’t seperate our the memory from my review.
