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.

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.
