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.

Appearance / Color
Riesling.

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

Flavor / 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.

Can Scotch go bad? Technically, an unopened bottle of Scotch can last forever. Air is the only true evil to Whisky; once the liquid is oxidized it is no longer immortal. After opening, as long as you store your Whisky in a cool, dry place, it will last another 5 years.
90% of all Scotch Whiskies sold are Blends.
Scotch Whisky is seldom aged in new barrels. Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey casks are usually used for maturation. In addition to that, Whisky is often matured or finished in various wine casks such as Sherry or Port.
Beer and malt Whisky seem to have quite a bit in common. Both drinks begin with malted barley, which deliver the enzymes and sugars needed for fermentation when steeped in hot water. The two go their separate ways at the wash stage, where they're fermented or aged to become the adult beverages you know and love.
First-class Whiskies are taxed not only by the state but also by the angels. This refers to the 4% of Whisky that evaporates from the barrels every year, a phenomenon known as the angel’s share.
Scotland is home to more than 20 million casks of maturing Whisky. That’s four for every person living there. Nuts!
