Packaged in an icy-blue gift tube with gloss-varnished snowflakes, Big Peat’s Christmas gift tube carries a bespoke illustration depicting the bearded fisherman riding a sleigh on his island home of Islay. The candy-striped, red and white bottle completes the festive release.
Fred Laing, chairman of his family’s firm, said in a prepared statement, “Our family business is truly grateful and pleased to know that our Big Peat Christmas bottling has become something of an annual ritual for other Islay whisky-loving families all over the world. It is so heartwarming to receive messages from keen consumers for whom opening that special bottle of Big Peat Christmas marks the beginning of the festivities with friends and family.”
Nose: Coastal influences - iodine and salty sea spray. Vegetal peat smoke.
Palate: Still richly smoky, with a crackle of black pepper bringing a core of spiciness. Viscous mouthfeel with plenty of ashy smoke, but also some leather and fresh tobacco rounded by lemons, apricots and honey.
Finish: Mostly green apples but peaty notes carry on and on.
