Big Peat Christmas 2017
Peated Blended Malt
Big Peat // Islay, Scotland
The bottling marks the 7th Christmas limited edition release from Douglas Laing & Co., bottlers of Big Peat. To honor the seventh release, this blended malt consists of seven single malts from Islay. This no-age statement release is bottled at cask strength of 54.1% ABV. As always, it is non chill-filtered with all natural color.
Peated Blended Malt100% malted barley from more than one distillery. Dried with peat.
"A young and vibrant nose with sweet malted barley, sauerkraut and an aroma of a smoldering campfire. Plenty of vanilla too, as well as overripe banana. The palate is brine-y, with tar, peat and thick smoke. The interplay between mild spices, rye bread and chocolate works well."
