Islay Blended Malt | Big Peat Cask Strength | Christmas Edition 2022 70cl/54.2%
Douglas Laing’s Big Peat Cask Strength Christmas Edition is a firm favourite with Islay malt fans and is the bottle that many whisky drinkers look forward to finding in their stockings on Christmas morning.
Douglas Laing’s Big Peat Christmas 2022 is, as ever, a cask strength (54.2% this time) Islay blended malt whisky bottled without colouring or chill filtration, and the named distilleries for the 2022 bottling include Ardbeg, Bowmore, Caol Ila, and (somehow, still) Port Ellen, though we’d imagine the latter is measured in teaspoons.
Official Tasting Notes:
Nose: Anticipate burnt caramel, wafts of Hebridean sea air, and notes of enticing peat smoke.
Palate: The ultimate Islay distillation, with notes of bonfire ashes and rich earthy notes balanced by toasted marshmallow sweetness.
Finish: Whilst these winter days may be short, the finish is satisfyingly long, with more of what went before.
