It seems like that festive bunch at Douglas Laing just cant wait for Christmas to come around, once again they are the first whisky company to drop a message in my mail box mentioning Christmas, in fact it has become almost traditional that the Glasgow based bottler lets us know in early September that summer is coming to an end and that the latest limited release of Big Peat Christmas Edition is on his way once again.

Big Peatís Christmas 2017 Edition which the folks at Douglas Laing describe as "a cask strength, smoky blast that delivers the ultimate taste of Islay Whisky" is as usual bottled at cask strength which this year is 54.1% ABV and of course natural colour and non chill-filtered.

As always the peaty blended malt contains whiskies from your favourite Islay operating distilleries as well as a top secret amount from the long time closed Port Ellen.

This has been a consistently high quality blended malt whisky series and you really wont find a more festive Christmas whisky gift to buy for a peaty whisky lover, this years very festive looking bottle features Big Peat bracing a blizzard battering his island home of Islay.

The proud creator of Big Peat, Douglas Laingís Managing Director Fred Laing commented on the 2017 release saying: "Big Peat is in the midst of his busiest year ever with numerous special bottlings, including his commemorative release for Feis Ile 2017, and multiple exclusive bottlings for some of his key markets across the globe. His demanding schedule continues with this latest release, which contains a unique recipe encompassing 7 of his favourite Single Malts from Islay, honouring the 7th Big Peat Christmas edition. The resulting liquid captures that signature smoky style with a marvellously maritime quality, just perfect for sipping by the fire, feet up on a cold winterís night. Big Peatís not ready to put his feet up just yet though, with one final big announcement to follow before the year is outÖĒ

Big Peat Christmas 2017 Edition will be available from specialist online whisky shops such as Master of Malt usually priced around £50.
