Review door Big Peat

« Deze review is alleen beschikbaar in het Engels »

The 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”.

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.
