Douglas Laing unveil Big Peat Christmas 2018 Cask Strength Limited Edition

Big Peat Christmas 2018 Cask Strength Limited EditionJust as summer is drawing to a close once again those festive folks at Douglas Laing today unveiled the latest instalment of their Big Peat Christmas Series of deliciously peaty Islay blended malts, the Big Peat Christmas 2018 Cask Strength Limited Edition which is the 8th annual release should be starting to appear on the shelves of specialist whisky shops from this month.

The Glasgow-based family owned and run whisky business which is currently amidst its 70th anniversary celebrations first launched Big Peat into the global market in 2009. Since then, the iconic Ileach fisherman has enjoyed exponential growth the world over, with a raft of market-exclusive bottlings, global limited releases and a cult following on social media contributing to his success, not to mention the quality of the skilfully blended peaty Islay malt whisky which you will find in the bottle which has been consistently good since its launch back in 2009.

The annual festive bottling this year shows Big Peat dressed in Santa Claus livery, delivering goodwill and gifts down a chimney on "his" island home of Islay. The premium gift tube shows varnished snowflakes against a rich, matte night sky, with decorative red foil detail. As is tradition for the Christmas Edition, "he" is bottled at a winter-warming Cask Strength of 53.9% ABV and as always and no doubt contributing to the flavour and quality of the whisky it is without colouring or chill-filtration.

Cara Laing, Director of Whisky at her familyís firm, commented:

"You can expect a big, ashy, beachy, oceanic and smoky message in the bottle, all the way from the island of Islay. During the festive season, that chimney soot connection seems particularly appropriate, being the entry point of our gift-laden Saint Nick himself. Big Peatís Christmas limited edition has become truly synonymous with the season, setting us up nicely as we prepare to celebrate his 10th birthday in 2019."

So if you want a bottle in your stocking this Christmas I suggest you start dropping hints to friends family now, or if you are the impatient sort who cant wait to open their presents you will find the Big Peat Christmas 2018 Edition will be available from September from specialist online whisky shops such as The Whisky Exchange and Master of Malt usually priced around £55.
