    On the basis of the notes of the normal big peat, I therefore assessed the feis ile 2020 edition.

    I immediately noticed that he has less punch on the nose. It is less smoky and it is clearly fresher on the nose

    The pallet is ash and firewood with slightly more citrus flavors than the normal expression.

    The finish is super assy.

    No big differences but less punchy than the normal ones. You can consider this as a bit softer and friendlier.

    Only tried a sample, so not a score, but an impression none the less.
    All in all, I found it to be rather similar to the standard Big Peat, as the differences are there, yet subtle. Given the fact that it is similarly priced compared to many malts that contribute to the Big Peat expressions, at around €50-€55, I’d say this is an enjoyable dram, but perhaps it’s trying a bit too hard to be everybody’s friend?
    • Nose
      On the nose, the first impression is that it’s bang in the middle of peat and orchard fruit, with obvious hints of pear. It’s youthful, malty with noticeable peat and smoke of medicinal notes, some campfire and a rather prominent ashy touch, although it never becomes overwhelming. Behind the pear, I also picked up some orange peel ad melon and a briny, salty note. Quite nice, I’d say.
    • Taste
      The palate delivers a vanilla sweetness and a soft peaty note, again allowing plenty of way for the fruity notes to join in. There’s also a bit of sharpness in the overall rather light texture – might be the youth showing.
    • Finish
      The finish is medium long, with a rather indistinct fruity element but a rather obvious ashy note.
