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!

Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
Blended Whiskies are the result of years of craftsmanship and dedication. A master blender does not simply wake up one day with a profound ability to create a cohesive and enjoyable liquid. From nosing the liquid to working out quantities of each different grain and malt to go into the blend, a master blender can take years, if not decades, to train.
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.
Categories of Scotch Whisky: Single malt, Blended malt (formerly called Vatted malt), blended, single grain and blended grain Scotch.
Scotland is home to more than 20 million casks of maturing Whisky. That’s four for every person living there. Nuts!
Whisky distilling goes way back to 1494 when the first recorded batch was made by a posse of monks who acquired about 60 gallons of barley and decided to turn it into "aqua vitae". They created the first 1,500 bottles of Scotch in History.
