Tasting Notes
Appearance / Colour
Riesling.

Smell / Nose / Aroma
Phenolic. Lemon zest and hints of chocolate, toffee, almonds and coffee. Delicate floral and fruit notes behind the smoke. 

Flavour / Taste / Palate
Salty and Spicy, notes of heavy smoke, oak roasted salmon oiliness, sweet carrots and cut grass. 

Finish
Long, peaty and dry. Tarry smoke turning ashy later on. It leaves your mouth dry and wanting some water.

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 2015 is a Blended Malt Whisky (a mixture of single Malt Whiskies that contains no grain Whisky or a marriage of Malts as the Scotch Whisky industry has traditionally called it), a blend of Ardbeg, Bowmore, Caol Ila and the famous Port Ellen. No chill filtration takes place, but a more old fashioned traditional approach, which amplifies the sea-faring qualities on the nose, palate, and finish. Quite phenolic. Bottled at cask strenght for extra merry power.
