Big Peat, Big Feet, Big Neat, the Christmas Edition.
Founded in 1948 by Fred Douglas, the Glasgow-based Douglas Laing & Co bottling company is now run by his two sons. They have amassed a vast stock of different malts over the last 50 years. Nowadays they're recognized as producers of high-quality blended malt Whiskies in the Whisky-sphere.
Big Peat Christmas Edition 2016 is unlike any bottling ever released by the firm before — it features Whiskies from every active distillery on the Isle of Islay, as well as from the closed Port Ellen distillery! Bottled at a natural cask strength of 54.6%, the new Christmas release is proudly without colouring or chill-filtration. It’s big and peated - peatheads will love this!

The Flavor Spiral™ shows the most common flavors that you'll taste in Big Peat Christmas 2016 Blended Malt Scotch Whisky and gives you a chance to have a taste of it before actually tasting it.
We invented Flavor Spiral™ here at Flaviar to get all your senses involved in tasting drinks and, frankly, because we think that classic tasting notes are boring.
