    A typical Big Peat ... As always with a lot of smoke and peat, greasy and fruity sweet, relatively thin on the tongue, just in typical Big Peat ... Whether Christmas Edition or similar the basic character is always the same (good), nothing special in my opinion. Fits (as always) ;-)

    • Nose
      Light caramel shines in the glass, an intense cold smoky note rises from my Premium Snifter immediately after pouring it. Earthy peat, banana and apricot, hints of fly ash, now mineral smoke, caramel and sweetness, greasy and oily, actually a typical big peat ...
    • Taste
      The mineral smoke note immediately sounds the alarm and almost burns your tongue. Yellow fruits, voluminous peat, fried bacon with hazelnuts, sugar and sweetness, burnt wood and ... heavy smoke!
    • Finish
      Burned wood sticks to the palate with fly ash, the peat remains tart in the memory, greasy and oily, long-lasting and warming.

    Smoke full, for me on the tongue more present than in many Octomore. Out back he has his weaknesses with a short and not very exciting finish.
    • Nose
      86 86
      Sweet peat smoke with pear flavor. Also a little banana. Looks fresh and fresh, like a fresh sea breeze with salt and a pinch of seaweed. The nose quickly gets used to the smoke, leaving behind the fruits, salt & pepper, anise and liquorice.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Strong peat smoke with machine oil, hot tar paper and Hansaplastfeeling. Hospital corridor. The pears and bananas from the nose also show up, but unlike the nose, the smoke on the tongue is absolutely dominant. At first oily, but then dry quickly with wood and spicy ham note.
    • Finish
      83 83
      Not very long finish. Dry and very smoky. Hardly any fruit left.

    This Big Peat Christmas Edition is very tasty. Especially for those who like really peat bombs. I opened this bottle yesterday for a Christmas party with my friends and we all really enjoyed it. For me personally, Big Peat is the best peat blended whiskey. I also wish you all a Merry Christmas and of course a lot of good whisky !!!
