Douglas Laing unveils an 8 year old limited edition expression of Big Peat as its Feis Ile release for 2020.

Big Peat 8 Year Old A846 Feis Ile 2020Douglas Laing today unveiled Big Peat 8 Year Old A846 Feis Ile 2020 edition, those of you who have ever travelled around Islay will recognise 'A846' as the road that takes whisky fans around the whisky island from one distillery to the next but sadly due to the Covid-19 pandemic peaty whisky fans were unable to make the annual pilgrimage to Islay for the annual 'Feis Ile', Festival of Music and Malt, where Douglas Laing would have normally unveiled what has now become an annual Islay Festival limited edition of Big Peat.

The Big Peat 8 Year Old A846 is a limited edition of 3000 bottles which have been bottled at 46% ABV with no added colouring or chill filtration and as you would expect from the artistic folks at Douglas Laing the packaging is adorned with graphics depicting the Big Peat character himself next to a A846 road sign on Islay.

Commenting on Big Peatís latest Feis Ile edition, Cara Laing, Director of Whisky in the Glasgow based family business behind the Big Peat blended malt whisky said: "Each year, we proudly donate to the Feis Ile charity, an organisation that works tirelessly to showcase Islay to the world. At a time when many of us are dreaming of one day making the journey back to the Queen of the Hebrides once more, a sip of Big Peatís A846 Edition seeks to bring his much-loved island home to you, via its unmistakably "Islay" notes of chewed leather, streaky bacon, punchy peat smoke and rock salt."

Continuing Feis Ile celebrations, the independent Whisky specialist is currently hosting a competition on Big Peatís Facebook page (Facebook.com/bigpeat) whereby fans of the brand can enter for a chance to win 1 of 40 tasting packs, and join the Douglas Laing team for a virtual tasting in June 2020.

Big Peat 8 Year Old A846 Feis Ile 2020 edition will be available from 8th June 2020 with a RRP of £45, you will find it available from specialist online whisky retailers such as The Whisky Exchange and Master of Malt
