New whisky for tasting in Warsaw
Big Peat Christmas Edition 2018 Cask Strength / 53,9% / – The Big Peat brand was launched in 2009 by Douglas Laing & Co. and remains one of the most cherished blended malt whiskies. The whisky is “a remarkable marriage of single malts sourced from the Islay distilleries representing all that is Islay in one bottle”. The main components of Big Peat are Ardbeg, Bowmore, Caol Ila and Port Ellen. The Christmas Edition bottled at natural strength followed two years later and scored excellent reviews. Here we have the 8th Christmas edition from 2018; this time the label features the “brand ambassador” dressed in Santa Claus livery, delivering goodwill and goods down a chimney on his island home of Islay. The gift tube shows varnished snow flakes against a rich, matte night sky, with decorative foil detail.
Nose: peat smoke and sea breeze, seaweed, sandy beach washed with ocean waves, vanilla, caramel, pineapples, bananas, dash of pepper and oak.
Palate: smoky and ashy, seaweed salad, vanilla, salted caramel, green apples, white pepper, hints of ginger and touch of tar.
